I must have dropped a coin at the Colosseum, because I just kept coming back and back and back.

After a tour of the Colosseum, I took this rather ordinary photo.

Fortunately, in winter, sunset comes early. After wandering around for about 20 minutes, I took another photo of the Colosseum from a higher vantage point.

Braced the camera against a ledge. However, with no tripod, the fun was soon over, so I headed back to the hotel.

The next morning, I headed out late. By the time I arrived at the Colosseum, the sun was just coming out, but the Colosseum lights had already been switched off. Oops.

The third visit was the charm: Christmas tree, Colosseum lights, and rich, blue sky.
