I found the Colosseum to be amazing, fascinating and photographically frustrating. This was my first trip to Rome but in the seven nights I stayed there I visited the Colosseum six times to try to get different angles in different lights, some with the crowds and some without. This close-up was taken on the second day, whilst we were waiting for our guided tour to start. The sky was blue and I had just put my super wide 10mm lens on the camera. It was more of a test shot at first, but I liked it enough to want to share it with you.
