After leaving Croatia, where I grabbed the 80M Pixel composite photo of Diolcletian’s Palace, we headed to Rome. While in Rome I took several High Resolution Composite Photographs of well known tourist attractions.
The photo above is a 52M Pixel Composite Photo of the Roman Colosseum (Amphitheatrum Flavium) from the west looking east along its longest axis. It consists of 18 – 12M Pixel Photos shot on my iPhoneX stitched together with AutoStitch, free software written by Matt Brown. The images were shot around 1pm in the afternoon of 7/5/2019
The Colosseum is simply amazing. It has (mostly) survived several earthquakes over the many years. Its construction started in 72AD and took about 8 years to build. Over 9,000 wild animals were killed in its inaugural games. The Colosseum was reworked several times due to damage from fires and other natural and man made disasters. It’s best know for the Gladiator fights (which appear to have ended around 435AD) but had many and varied uses over its several thousand year life.
It is a must see in Rome. Bring water 🙂
