Photographer's Note

Pantheon Dome and Oculus

I posted a photo of the exterior of the Pantheon in Rome earlier this week. Here is a photo of the interior of the famous dome. It is a large coffered concrete dome with a central opening to the sky (oculus). The height to the oculus and the diameter of the dome are both 43 metres. Built in the 2nd century AD, it is still the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world. The oculus was very brightly overexposed, so I decreased the brightness by 50%.
