Arno River, Florence

Photograph by Heather Anne Campbell , My Shot

Spending the holidays traveling means fewer tourists and more clouds. This photo was taken on Christmas in Florence , Italy. Very few people were walking around, and the air was very still.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? This photograph has a delicate, painterly quality, which is lovely. The soft, gray light and the choice to show more sky above the bridge than water below reinforces the stillness of the day the photographer describes. —Alexa Keefe
