Some two thousand years ago, this place was pulsating with activity as crowds roared while men and animals fought to the death in mortal combat. But this time, as I walked around the Colosseo, only the soft crunch of gravel filled the still, morning air.
The sun hadn’t come out yet and an interesting cloud formation hovered over the scene so I decided to shoot this HDR-style in order to get better details. So I merged four shots to come up with this image which, I think, captures the atmosphere quite nicely.
