Welcome to my Top Ten 2017! Each year I collect my best ten shots and this is what I came up with in 2017.
I started my photography year of 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark in January. After a day full of work I found some time to spent in Nyhavn, the old harbour of Copenhagen. I did some long exposure and it was very, very cold. Quite liked the result of the smooth water in Nyhavn in this pic. Find our more about my "At night" work.

I never made it to Rome until March 2017. Europe has so many things to offer, but the rest of the world also does. So I generally tend to go intercontinental in my long vacation since it is easier to endeavor Europe's beauty later in life. Anyway, after a two hour flight from Hamburg it was time for almost a week in the capital of Italy. I had time to reflect on the trip to come up with my Top Ten Rome Pictures this week. if you like what you see make sure to check my other blogposts on Rome: St. Peter's Basilica, Castel Sant'Angelo, Rome Street Photography and my Rome gallery.
The Colosseum is a Flavian Amphitheatre completed 80 AD. It is the largest amphitheater ever built. Some 50.000 to 80.000 spectators were able to watch gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions and dramas based on classical mythology. Today the Colosseum is partially ruined due to earthquakes and stone-robbers, but still an iconic architectural landmark of Imperial Rome.
