The Colosseum - Rome

Had a long weekend in Rome, and very nice it was too.
So might be a few more photo heavy posts to follow!

To start with here are a few in and around the Colosseum
Hope you enjoy

Re: The Colosseum - Rome

Fantastic set with some great compositions.

No 13 stands out for me, great sense of the scale of the building.

Thanks for sharing.

What lens did you use for Looking Up - the info does not show in the EXIF data.

Nice to see you had some good weather.
