While touring Castello d'Angelo the impending sunset gave us the most amazing view of the vatican, to top it off we witnessed a huge murmuration from the balcony of the castle. While all of these smaller details are paintings in their own right, that I will probably be revisiting in the future, this is one that I originally painted from memory and was pleased to find I wasn't too far off when revisited with an actual map reference. For my own fun I have used the viewpoint of the angel atop the castle, something I find amusing, as that same angle probably witnessed many a pope sneaking over from the Vatican to execute unsavory business.
