#13 A bright winter sunset

It's not quite usual for Venice, but it happens sometime in winter to have days when the light is particularly bright and crisp. When the "bora", the north-east wind, blows from Trieste, its chilly and dry air cleans the sky from clouds and mist but also relieves the soul and mind of people; then, the colors of Venice become more intense and vivid, and so does the city itself. Its houses, palaces and people seem to reborn to new life.
