Curves and colonnades
Hampton Court Palace near London is famous for being the splendid, opulent former home of King Henry VIII – the lavish Tudor tyrant with the six wives.
It has beautiful formal gardens, fountains and even a maze. But this one detail caught my eye for its sweeping curves and gorgeous colonnades. This is just one of the palace’s courtyards, Fountain Court, and perfect for a study in symmetry and shape both under the archways and on the outside.
Have you ever found it hard to tear yourself and the camera away from one thing?…
These are excellent – it is difficult to photograph architecture well!
Thank you very much, Diana. I found the curved arches really captivating and spent far too long trying to capture the right perspective!
