Stone Pines at Villa Torlonia
So I headed out this weekend to take pictures at Villa Torlonia, but wanted to wait until I thought the light would be good. Silly me, I forgot the park closed early in the winter and when I got there a few minutes before 5 pm, they were kicking everyone out. Oh well, another site goes on the list for the summer!
Not to be thwarted, I decided to take a few shots of the stone pines (also known as umbrella pines) that were shooting up from behind the stone fence. I tried to get an interesting foreshortening going on. Not sure if I completely succeeded, but I like the result. These stones pines are everywhere here in Rome, and quite beautiful, I think. They kind of remind me of huge bonsai trees.
