MB travelled to Italy with family in recent days and was lucky enough to visit the ruins of Pompeii. His shot selection for ‘Narrow’ is a shot through the ruins towards the dastardly Mount Vesuvius, which exploded in 79 AD, burying Pompei and nearby towns in some 6 to 10m of hot ash and rock. Within a few generations, the locations of the towns were forgotten and it wasn’t until approx 1750 AD that the buried town (ruins) were discovered (by a local farmer trying to drill a well on his land).
Pompeii will feature again shortly in HX Report posts.
