Pantheon Interior, Rome Italy

Relative close-up of the columns and interior dome architecture.

Yes, I know there are probably a million pictures of this iconic structure similar to this one. I happen to like mine better than any of those - because I was able to draw out the extreme detail of the carving in the dome.

This building (it's the third on this spot after the first burned down in a fire in 80 AD and the second was hit by lightening and burned in 110 AD) was built in 120 AD. A simply amazing structure, especially given that it was built nearly 2,000 years ago. W.O.W.!
