The well preserved Doric temple is located on a hill just outside the ancient city of Segesta, Sicily, Italy.
Now part of an archeological site where works are ongoing, it was built sometime in the late 5th century BC.

Information about the area and it’s chequered history can be seen on Wikipedia as well as other sites.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.
I am retired, beyond threescore years and ten.

    I know it needs protecting, but it must have been frustrating not to be able to look at this from other and closer angles.

  • No real frustration Eve … we were able to walk all around the temple, but not inside … I have shots from other angles, both with and without tourists, from points close enough that the whole front or side did not fit within the confines of the viewfinder. Thanks for commenting !

    It just needs a roof (:>) Great image, excellent color

  • Byron, apparently it never did get a roof … and the columns are not completed to their usual finished point.
    Thanks so much for your great comments and favourite !

    I thought I might see you standing in the temple with a Roman toga on Trish… Terrific shot and an amzing temple/architecture. Were you lucky enough to go to Rome/Italy on your recent trip?

  • Thanks very much Mark ! No toga on this trip, but we saw some amazing really ancient sites … more to come … we had three days in Rome last year and saw many of the most popular places and some less
    well known … several smaller ports were included in this year’s itinerary.
