Segesta Dawn

This is a mock-up of a sunrise I prepared for I forget what. If the view looks familiar then this is because it’s a photo I abuse a lot. It’s from the interior of the temple at Segesta and it’s a handy photo to use. One reason is that it’s a very Greek looking temple with the columns and so forth and it’s hand to be able to view it from the inside. Ironically it’s not a Greek temple. It was built by Elymians, natives asssociated with the west of Sicily.

Lest you be overly impressed that I should get up early enough to blag my way into the site and photograph the sunrise, below the fold is the original version of the photo. If you look at the sunrise location you can see where I’ve removed a hill, so this is not intended to be strictly accurate.
