There is a scene in the Truman Show where Truman sails away in a boat. I noticed how pretty the sky looked like. Eventually the bow of the boat hits a dome and broke the painted sky. It was a fake sky! And Truman spent a moment, looking amazed.
Living in Rome gives me feel like Truman sometimes. Because the skies here look fake. Like a painting.
This was taken a few weeks ago while Cart and I were out looking for new furnitures for the house. The sky was so vivid that we spent at least 10 minutes taking pictures of the sunset.
And this is in Gianicolo. If you are ever in Rome, Gianicolo hill is a pretty place to be as it overlooks many of the monuments in Rome.
I keep telling Cart that I find that Roman skies look unreal. Growing up in Singapore, we’ve never seen anything like this before. Our sunsets are more orange.
Cart explained to me that the colours of the sunset was because of the atmosphere and the altitude that we have here in Rome. While Singapore is closer to the equator.
But its not only the sunsets here which was beautiful. Even the clouds seemed unnatural to me.
I dont think that I’ve ever seen this Cirrocumulus formation before. Its quite interesting.
Even when the weather is bad, sometimes you see sights like this.
A really big rainbow. Not that there isn’t any rainbows in Singapore, but with our tall buildings, its not that often that we spot them.
Thus, that’s why I feel that Roman skies look fake, like a painting. After a year of living in Rome, I still marvel when I look at the sky.
