Thx Fai for nice comment! This is front of Basilica di San Paolo fuori le Mura — known in English as the Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls or St Paul-without-the-Walls. — is one of four churches considered to be the great ancient basilicas of Rome. On July 15 , 1823 a fire, started through the negligence of a workman who was repairing the lead of the roof, resulted in the almost total destruction of the basilica.

Great nightshot with nice colors. The blue in the sky stands very well to the motive. Could have been even better without the dark columns in front - but probably hard to aviod!

Greetings. Finn.
