Last year, my parents were married for 30 years. We went to Rome with the former household (my brother, his girlfriend, my parents and me) and I took some photos there.

The fountain of the Naiads at the Piazza della Republica. I took this shot 15 minutes after sunset, give or take. I loved the way the sky looked here. It was amazingly blue.

Same fountain. Same timeframe.

This is the Piazza with the fountain the middle.

This shot of the coloseum was shot from the Roman Forum's edge.

I took a similar picture two years ago of the same fountain except it was early in the morning. Nice shots.

A panorama of the famous Trevi Fountain. Why a panorama?
The widest I had was my 17mm lens and that was too wide :(
On the plus side, I think I can print this lifesize now :-P

This was somewhere in the forum inside, my camera was through the bars of a railed door so you couldn't enter this area, but I can't for the life of me find out what this place was called... googling didn't help. Anyone here might know?

Excellent shots Wesley, which very well remind the true atmosphere of Rome.

About the last photo, I think it's the grotto located under the fountain which is on the way (stairs) of Villa Farnese's garden, at the side of the Forum.
