New on 500px : Festa della Sensa by vesnazivcic by vesnazivcic

Festa della Sensa used to be a feast of the Republic of Venice held on the occasion of the Ascension Day. It has been revived in modern times (1965). A colorful procession of decorated boats leaves from St. Mark’s Square and sails to the Port of San Nicolo, Lido, where a gold ring is tossed into the sea in a ceremony known as the “Marriage of the Sea”.

The photo is 9322x1493px large.

Pity that 500px does not offer any enlargement for panoramas, since its details and sharpness are much better than presented here on the page.
