Thanks so very much, Terry-Lynn
Hi Ing – I will be traveling to Italy in a couple of months and hope to make it to the Pantheon. Do you know if they allow tripods inside? Do you have any suggestions for the time of day to go?
Hmm, I was there a few times during the 4 days I was in Rome. I think you need to be there during the mid day hours to get the light beam like this. There are lots of tourists most of the time so tripod may be tricky. I used my Canon IS lens for this one and fairly high ISO. The best time would be if there is a light rain since the beam would look really cool. when the rain comes through the hole.
If you go in the fall/winter you will have less tourists, so that’s good. I don’t think tripods are a problem there, since it is pretty wide open, but I didn’t check.
Awesome, Inge ~ Lynn
