Stone pine trees in Rome / Les pins parasols à Rome

Rome certainly has a lot of interesting sites to visit. Although its hard to list them all, I think that the Pantheon, the Piazza Navona, the Vatican and Ancient Rome would be on the top of my list. The landscape of Rome also made an impression on me; particularly the stone pine trees that could be seen around the city. This scene is of a few of those trees along the Via del Fori Imperiali with the Santa Luca e Martina Church in the background.

Yes these pines, they are beautiful, and really add to the images. They make a nice contrast to the ochre colours, and form look-throughs.
I also did a "pine" painting, but on the other side of the road, forum Augustinos.
I also like the blueish atmosphere, reminiscent to those nice warm evenings, when the cobblestones still radiate the warmth of the day.
