The Bodrum Amphitheatre is a fourth-century B.C. amphitheater in Bodrum. It’s another structure accredited to the reign of King Mausolus, although it wasn’t fully completed until the Roman era. The theatre is another witness to the great past of Bodrum, and it is one of the best preserved structures of ancient Halikarnassus. Originally, it was built around 4th C BC during the reign of King Mausolos, in 2nd C AD, during the Roman period, it was enlarged and enriched.
Seating about 13.000 spectators the theater dates to the region of Mausolus but with modifications added by the Romans. With rock tombs above, the site provides an unequalled view of the city. Some of the seats at the theatre are inscribed with names probably those who had helped to pay for the theatre.
Today Turkcell and Ericsson have completely restorated the site of the Antique Theatre into an open air museum. The Bodrum Amphitheatre lies on the road to Gumbet and is used for concerts and shows during the high season.

J'ai eu le plaisir de voir cet amphithéâtre. Il est magnifique et tu as certainement trouvé le point de vue parfait pour l'avantager et lui donner de la profondeur. La lumière est très belle.

a very impressive amphitheatre, its capacity is amazing and your sharp and clear photo shows it's in great condition too. I like very much the point of view you chose and the dynamic composition you created. The theatre almost fills the frame and the sense of depth is superb. The colours are strong and agreeable, the shadows enhance the effectiveness of the description and the appeal of the view. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Une version large qui est magnifique, bien cadrer, bonne gestion de la lumière, un site historique bien présenter

this is an excellent example of when and how to use the wide angle lens.
especially with the circular motion of the Amphitheater, as its exagerated even more.

Although I have been through Bodrum several times I have not stayed there or seen this impressive theatre. I stayed instead at Gumusluk. So tfs! Good sharpness and superb density levels that have given excellent saturation and punchy light contrasts. The people surveying the ancient ruins of the theatre add scale. Tfs!
