The story behind the image

You’re not going to travel to Rome and not see the Piazza di San Pietro, right? And, strictly speaking, it does not even belong to Italy, because it is already located on the grounds of the fully independent Vatican City. The Piazza was built from 1656 to 1667 by Bernini who was quite active in Rome. And this is rightly regarded as his masterpiece. Today the place can take up to 60,000 believers.

My image shows the columns that line the Piazza. I like the way the colmns are illuminated by the sunlight, the interesting angle and the cloudy sky which adds some contrast.

A beautiful location.
