Photographing Rome in the winter

You might think taking nice pictures of Rome is only possible in the summer… well, I don’t think so! 🙂

We recently came home from a fantastic extended weekend trip to Rome were we of tried our best to see the most of the top tourist traps like the Colosseum, Pantheon, the St. Petri Basilica etc. Not that we managed to see it all (as you might have understood) – there’s a lot(!) to experience in Rome.

One interesting thing coming from the north is the presence of wild parrots. At a first thought you might think it is very exotic, but after talking to locals I learnt that the parrots once were kept in cages in private homes, but then in the late 1970’s and 1980 the were released into the wild and have spread ever since. Nowadays you may see them in the city parks of Rome.

Use my picture as inspiration for your coming trip to Rome. If you want more specific info about photographing in Rome, just drop me comment. 🙂
