Photograph of the week: the Colosseum


The Colosseum in Rome is widely considered to be one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering. This particular shot of the famous landmark was a thirty second exposure, which allowed the clouds to travel and give a sense of movement to the image.  It also makes the colours really stand out.

    This place always make my jaws drop for 20 seconds. (But the forum 30 seconds). There is a great deal to see in the archaeological area of Ancient Rome and one of the project of Major Marino is to open up Via dei Fori Imperiali and keep digging. It was about time that they closed this place to traffic. It is just too beautiful to be treated like any random city center.
