Aah The Coliseum...; A Little Roman Reminiscing

During our trip to Rome last February, I took a lot of photos of the Coliseum because we stayed in a hotel just a couple minutes away.  I took sunrise, sunset, mid-day, panos etc, but this is by far my favorite.  In fact, it's the only one of the Coliseum as the main subject I selected as a pick from all those photos.  I particularly like how the people at the bottom give context to the incredible scale of this ancient marvel.
