The Queens House at Greenwich.
The elegant Tulip Stairs in the Queen's House are the first geometric self-supporting spiral stair in Britain. Although called the 'tulip' stairs, it is thought that the stylized flowers in the wrought-iron balustrade are actually fleurs-de-lis, as this was the emblem of the Bourbon family of which Queen Henrietta Maria (wife of Charles I) was a member.

Absolutely love them all but V3 with the portrait format, near Fibonacci proportions and gentle hint of subtle colour does it for me.

I am with LynneJoyce on this, although all are very good.

Impressive composition! Excellent control over the contrast with beautiful hi lights on the handrail as it spirals towards the apex of the roof,
Truly an astonishing appealing image and a pleasure to view... SmileSmileSmileSmileSmile
