These columns belong to the Temple of Bacchus in Baalbek, Lebanon. Formerly known as Heliopolis(The City of The Sun) during Roman Times, only half of the city was ever finished, but the temple actually went on to become the largest religious temple in the Roman Empire.
Also, note the Arabic writing on the right circular column. While at first sight they seem like the typical signs of vandalism, these were actually carved on the columns more than 200 years ago.

very interesting point of view here and good exposure, because you don't have overexposed part, what is very important!
I think a pictute needs a bit more sharpness. Keep oh shooting:)

bel POV basso proprio sotto il tempio.
Buona gestione della luce e dei colori

Nice perspective, good colors. You managed the sky without burning it.
