Rome enjoys a Mediterranean climate typical of the Mediterranean coasts of Italy. Spring and autumn are mild to warm, and the Romans ottobrate ("beautiful October days") are known as being sunny and warm. By August, the maximum diurnal temperature often exceeds 30 °C (86 °F). Traditionally, many businesses were accustomed to closing during August, while Romans visited holiday resorts. In more recent years, however, in response to growing tourism and changing work habits, the city has been staying open for the whole summer. The average high temperature in January is about 12.9 °C (55.2 °F), but in hot periods it can be higher, while subzero lows are not uncommon. Snowfalls can occur in December, January, February and March. Within the last four decades they have been rare in Rome. During the night of Feb 3-4, 2012, the city experienced its heaviest snowfall since February 11, 1986, resulting in up to 20 centimeters of snow accumulation in some neighborhoods. In the snowfall of Feb 11, 1986, some 20cm of snow paralysed the city. Before 2012, the most recent snowfalls were on February 12 2010 and on December 17 2010. Between 1986 and 2010 snow fell on 6 other occasions in 1991, 1996, 1999, 2002, 2004 and 2005.

Hello Daniel - This is really good. I like the soft yellow of the wall, the green shutters and the single wall lamp. The vertical composition is finely composed and works very well. The star of the show has to be the light which is casting nice strong shadows which give the shot good contrast. Very nice job. Warm regards Rosemary

A fine crop of these windows and street lamp. The play of light and shadows is a superb input here makes your work really awesome. TFS.
mauro61 (52623) 2012-02-05 11:20
mi piace il taglio e la tonalità color crema dell'immagine.
La sequenza verticale dei balconi è ben colta dal tuo scatto con il lampione a rompere questa specie di simmetria,

O compozitie superba. Imi place jocul de lumini si umbre plus o lumina extraordinara!
O seara buna!

Fantastic composition, both for this long vertical format, as performed by the POV, with the line of balconies, perfect the graphics of the shadows of the same, the lamp also adds a beautiful touch to the composition. Wonderful job, I like.
Good start to the week.

Fantastic graphical image. The minimalism is remarkable! Love the lines and the sense of strong balance and symmetry. The shadows sure did a wonderful effect on the over all aesthetics of the image. The vertical format worked out very nice too. Nice colors, sharp and clear capture! Flawless composition!

This is a fine piece of architectural photo, very well cropped. The diagonal shadows are very nice and I like the slight irregularities here and there. It's a perfectly sharp and well exposed photo.

Esti maestrul detaliilor, frumoase umbrele, minunata compozitie!
king (2905) 2012-02-13 7:52
Well composed picture with a mystery. I don't understand the shadow on the door of the upper balcony. Where does it come from?
serp2000 (39982) 2012-02-13 19:03
I like your idea to shot this simple view. Original composition, it leads to certain thoughts: why did they a door without a balcony??? Excellent register. TFS!
bayno (18342) 2012-02-14 15:08

The framing is very appropriate for these fabulous venetian type windows.
The shadows of the salient facade elements in a warm Mediterranean yellow painting are really amazing.
Thanks for the saring Daniel,

I'm very partial to images with strong linear perspectives and this image does it for me. I also love the strong shadows cast by the lamp and the balconies. Well captured
korbee (6617) 2012-03-09 15:20

yeln (11504) 2012-03-09 15:30
preprost motiv in zelo lepa igra svetlobe in senc.
izgleda, da je zgornji sosed ostal brez balkona.
lep pozdrav, vojko
kennyblack (4207) 2012-03-20 12:54
Excellent 's idea of the vertical rectangle. Molt well managed the light and the 'shadow effect of the balconies, all of excellent quality.

maloutim (9637) 2013-07-20 4:23
Great graphic picture of these three storeys represented by the three shuttered windows.
The balconies and their shadows for two of them add to the elegance, as does the elaborate lamp on the wall.
I like the pastel ochre and the grey shutters.
jrleborgne (1554) 2013-09-14 5:16
Judicieux cadrage et lumière pâle rehaussée par un jeu d'ombres qui ajoute de la profondeur, du volume et une élégance architecturale supplémentaire.
Très bien vu !
Noel_Byrne (24199) 2014-01-03 7:21
