Sabbioneta is a small "perfect" city built by a Renaissance Warlord in the Sixteenth century. It is a few miles from Mantua in the North of Italy. It is well worth a visit (except Monday, when the monuments are closed).

I have shot pictures of this place many times with M43 to take advantage of hand held IBIS. But this time I asked I asked If I could use a tripod. To my absolute surprise they said yes.
So I hauled the D810 around shooting at ISO 64 at the aperture I wanted.

The light was what it was but I finally managed to get some decent shots of the Galleria degli Antichi after four attempts to find it free of scaffolding or an exhibition of some sort.

I have always assumed tripods are banned in monuments like this. I will always ask from now on.

Great I like them. The skills never cease to amaze I guess we will learn to build wind resist bridges/buildings one day:(
