The fence is awesome! I love the gold on it, and it makes it totally royal. But what is a Guard Museum?

Linda said...

Denise, those gates are glorious! I love your perspective in these photos, what a beautiful place. I have seen it before in photos but nothing like you are sharing here, so thank you!

Fantastic fences and gates. I hope you did the tour of the Place as I am told it is very good. I would like to do that possibly next year. Of courssse you are not allowed to photograph!

A very Royal fence. Thank you.

Valerie said...

Ah yes, reminiscent of my visits to Buckingham Palace. Thank you for reviving the memories. Did you get to see all the magnificent carriages and the State Coach used by the Queen? One of my best memories was being in the throne room waiting to be knighted ... it was of course, empty at the time!!!

Denise, you are really covering the bases on this one! Great pictures from various perspectives.

I guess that's real gold on the fence, right?

Too cool...it makes me wonder if the queen has gazed at all those various sculptures till she knows where each unicorn might be. I also noticed another photographer with a unipod...so I dare say there were lots of other cameras clicking away when you were there. Thanks for sharing!

Karen S. said...

Wow, these are fantastic. I dug out a photo from here as well this week! Yours are exceptional!

Beautiful shots!

Looking at the helmets of the bobbies, it reminds me that the helmets of the Newfoundland Constabulary are rather alike.

And before I saw this, I thought I had a fabulous fence! This one is wonderful! And I enjoyed the rest of your pics, too.

Absolutely enchantment throughout!! I love the fences/gates/guards/ sky and architecture!!! Well done Denise.

Wow the gates and fencing there are so ornate and fascinating. I really liked photos 2 & 5 for showing that aspect off. All the shots were great and it would be exciting to visit this place, which I just did through your great photos.
