Today’s technology has made it possible for photographers to capture the world’s marvels in more incredible ways than ever before.
Take this time lapse video of Rome by Ukrainian photographer Kirill Neizhmakov, for instance. It’s simply spectacular.
Using his high-end Canon camera equipment, Neizhmakov and his wife, Alexandra, have created an epic three-minute tour of the Eternal City, including visuals of some of its more notable landmarks, such as the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel.
“Rome is synonymous with history,” the photographer says in a YouTube upload. “Where else can you walk in the same footsteps as the Caesars, St Peter, the Popes, Michelangelo, Dante, Raphael to name but a few?”
He notes that Rome, Italy’s capital, is an easily walkable city, being Europe’s “largest open-air museum”.
The video is a fantastic way to get a fast-paced glimpse of Rome via its many cobbled streets and ancient structures.
“By walking you get a real feel for the ambiance,” he adds. “Good, free walking maps are available all over the city, so hit the cobblestones.”
