Archway

By mistere
The Arch of Constantine (with Saturday Shadows) is a triumphal arch in Rome, situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It was erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge on October 28, 312.
The arch is 21 m high, 25.9 m wide and 7.4 m deep. It has three archways, the central one being 11.5 m high and 6.5 m wide, the lateral archways 7.4 m by 3.4 m each.

Happy Saturday everyone. Sorry for my lack of comments this week, it's been a busy one.
Will try and catch up with your images this weekend.

A great night time image, Dave - I wonder what could have been seen through the arch when it was first built - not many cars, I bet!!Smile

Not only a great night image, but an emotional one for me (the eight -4 on each sides - statues represent Dacian warriors prisoners. seems that Constantine have stolen them from a destroyed unknown monument - was a very common practice during whole history!, he never fought Dacians, but those beautiful statues represent somewhat my ancestors...) Besides that, this wonderful roman baroque style arch, as I said before, it is magnificent captured here, very well done!
