The temple of Olympian Zeus (2)
Its because of the sheer size of the 104 Corinthian columns (17m high with a base diameter of 1.7m) that makes it so high and mighty. Impressive.
This remain temple is located in the park of Athens, which is quite high. It is hard to imagine how people built up such huge poles during that acent time.

Remnants of Olympeon
Later that afternoon an enormous crane was erected on the Acropolis. It was so large that it could be seen from this very spot.

By now you'll want to give yourself a break from ruins... just take a look at these columns from the Acropolis, take a picture with your zoom lens, and skip it!
Temple of the Olympic Zeus.
15 granite pillars of the original 104 are still standing. And there is a very photogenic fallen one.
