High Tide, Chioggia

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Shots

In autumn, the high tide often submerges Chioggia, a small town in the Venetian Lagoon, creating reflections and an enchanting atmosphere. This phenomenon is called acqua alta, which means high water.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? Ambiance, color, reflection. I love night shots that go beyond the usual. This quiet scene is complete in itself while also leaving room for the imagination. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
