I captured this 1st century BC Roman theatre from one of the small cable cars coming down the mountain overlooking the beautiful Umbrian village of Gubbio. This theatre once held about 12,000 spectators. It's still used for various performances.

    What a wonderful view point and how thrilling for you to shoot these pictures high up in the air from the cable car..I think photography is a good incentive and cure for getting over the fear of heights..You did very well on all of your pictures.

    There is no other way to see this shot except for far above it. Richard is dead on. A rare view of this stunning structure.
