Heavenly light

By ColleenA
Good day...
Finally arrived in a cold Melbourne....9 degGrinGrin
Now have to get used to being 9 hours ahead of most of the world..
We visited the Pantheon on Rome on our last day...what amazing light enters from the 9 metre wide oculus in the middle of the dome that measures 44.4m in diameter. When it rains the water drains through the drainage holes in the marble floor.
have a great day...

Grin Glad to hear you got home fine. Cold you say? 9 degrees you say?
A good excuse to settle in the sofa with a nice glass of Port to get over the jet lag... Grin
On this side of the World we'll just make a cup of tea and enjoy brousing through your amazing holiday shots...
You details of the Pantheon are so very beautiful... And in the words of Richard: V1 is stunning!

A fantastic trip around the world ( from Marrocco to Istanbul, from Greece to Italy) reflected in an amazing collection of pictures sets
