Roman Forum

Roman Forum

A friend once said something to me along the lines of:

"For Europeans 200km is a long distance, and for Australians 200 years is a lot of history."

There is a lot of truth to this, as any building in Australia that is 200 years old is likely to be a heritage building. In Europe there are many buildings many centuries old still in daily use, and real heritage can be found in sites like the Roman Forum, which dates back for more than 2,000 years.

We sought out a spot that is commonly referred to as the Forum Lookout, but found on scouting that there was a lot of scaffolding in place as key features are being cared for.

So I came back to shoot a sunrise, carefully setting up to avoid the scaffolding and taking in a broad view of the Roman Forum.

Scouting and perspective are important, and with a bit of thought a decent image can be made.
