Landscapes in The Gallery

This week the theme in The Gallery is Landscapes

Go and take a photo of one that inspires you, dig one out of your archives or get creative. Trees (ahem), sea shores, beach, skyline, fields, roof tops, pylons, mountains, snow whatever.

This was taken on holiday in Rome a few years ago.  The landscape of the entire city is just breathtaking and if you like a bit of history then its like being in history heaven.  You can’t turn around without seeing a bit of history that shaped Rome and its like being on an adult school trip.  One of my favourite places was something called The Forum.  Its where some of the key councils and leaders would meet and discuss key matters that shaped their world  Every little ruin is still steeped with stories from the past and you can wander around for hours just learning.  You can see the Coloseum in the background just to the right.  Thats a whole story in itself!

    Beautiful! We’ve been to Rome, drove down to Amalfi from it, but spent a day or two there. Absolutely gorgeous picture.
