Thuburbo Maius

Thuburbo Maius 

The ruins of the Roman town Thuburbo Mais (or Majus) in modern day Tunisia.

The local Capitolium in the middle, its columns were re-erected by French archaelogists in the 19th(?) century.


Shot under dull direct harsh sunlight, therefore more postprocessing than I usually do (saturation bumped up a lot etc.), perhaps even overdone?

Schwarze Rabenseele, Demetrius Chryssikos have particularly liked this photo

Renting a car and whizzing about on the countryside was the best decision we made on the whole trip (apart from getting skin cancer on the beach that is, considering it was our honeymoon and all ;) ) Another trip we made was by regular tour buses = extremely crowded historic/tourist sites = no good photos or anything.

By moving about independently we had all the sites for ourselves.

Thanks Berny, I think I had to crop quite a bit. For some reason I think afterwards that my photographic eye wasn't with me (might have been caused by the juggling of two still cameras and a video camera = too many cameras equals too little or poor images).

a nice location and good picture of a roman historical place.
You are not alone with your feeling of haveing too big baggage volume for some picures.
