This photo was taken in the Venetian lagoon in February of this year. We had just visited the Armenian monastery on one of the islands and as we came out this was the view. The sea was like liquid gold.
For me, this is not only a stunning photo, but it reminds me of a lovely friend of mine.
The very next morning I learned that she had lost her fight with cancer almost to the minute that I had taken the photo. She was a truly golden lady, and is greatly missed.
