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?…
