Burano in winter

I arrived on the island of Burano in the Venetian lagoon on a freezing winter's day and found a place awash with colour and at the same time utterly deserted, as if the inhabitants had abandoned it in a great hurry to escape some looming cataclysm. It reminded me of a de Chirico painting.
