A Roman sunset

These images where taken on the last evening of a trip to Rome two years ago, its was one of the best city holidays I have ever been on and the last days weather was just amazing. My brother had already left on a train from Rome’s Termini train Station and my own bus to the airport was only about an hour away but the sunset was just wonderful so of I went in a mad rush to get some images and here they are.

They cost me €80 to get, as this was the cost of the taxi, by the time I got to the bus – well I only got a view of the back of it as it speeded away minus myself.

  4. Defo worth it. If you happen to be of a literary mind, you will see how I imagine these photos could illustrate Edith Wharton’s short story, “Roman Fever”. At the time the story was written, Roman fever referred to malaria, which was easily inflicted on careless tourists due to all the mosquitoes in the swampy area that surrounded Rome at the time. The story has a wonderful twist at the end–give it a quick read if you get a chance. It’s quite amusing and not really about malaria at all!

  6. I’ve been admiring your photos in my Reader for a while now and no doubt ‘liked’ a few. So glad to find the time to pop over to your blog and find a whole gallery when I thought you had just posted one photo! I love the light in the first one too – the crisp outline of the tree is amazing.
