The Pantheon, Rome by Thomas Southgate

The Pantheon, Rome

I am an amateur photographer who enjoys capturing landscapes both natural and man made. This has led me to develop a particular interest in landscapes of historic and heritage significance.

I love to travel to different cities and try to capture their cultures and history through photography. When visiting Rome, nothing prepares you for the magnificence that is the Pantheon. My submitted image is a detail of the dome from inside the building. It remains the largest self-supporting dome in the world, centuries after it was constructed. The symmetry and sheer simplicity of the dome's interior design is one of the most incredible things I have ever seen, and worthy of being photographed again and again.
