Equestrian statue of Richard the Lionheart (coeur de lion), King of England (1189-1199), located in Old Palace Yard outside the Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster), London.

The bronze statue was sculpted by Baron Carlo Marochetti and completed in 1856. The statue shows King Richard I on horseback, wearing a mail shirt and lifting a sword into the air. Bas-relief panels showing the Battle of Ascalon and Richard pardoning Bertran de Born were added to the stone plinth in 1866.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Imbolc'.

Best wishes,
Philip

A fine statue, Philip, and a fabulous backdrop of the Houses of Parliament building. Carol

Like Carol, I think this is a super statue with a magnificent back drop of the houses of parliment - you didn't mention in your foreward if the goverment exempted themselves from the window tax as I have never seen so many windows in one wall of a building!

The King who pretty much bankrupted England! Amazing how he managed to grow so popular as the centuries passed, no least as he was so rarely in the country. Great statue and as always, beautifully captured.

Beautifully captured image, nice colour,detail, and writing up. I never have any digital photo of the Houses of Parliament, can't remember if I had any film ones as well... I bought some postcards, I do remember, some beautiful low light ones that was hard to take with film camera for me, but rarely see the closing up view. Thanks for sharing.Smile

Excellent composition Philip, and that vignetting works really well.
