From the small campo behind Miracoli the open access to the canal gives an unobstructed view, allowing for a full length gondola shot made longer by the exaggerating perspective of the buildings beyond and further enhanced by my choice of lens.

Nevertheless these vessels near eleven metres in length.  I’m sure there’s a sound navigational reason for this.  It couldn’t possibly be overcompensation by gondoliers could it?
