The tulip staircase

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Many thanks for your continued support ....also a big thank you to Robert (Jeddahknight111), Robert Turley, HobbitDave, Isabel (Chinga) and Jukka (Kuvailija) for their UA's....all much appreciated
I took a cruise down to Greenwich on Saturday and visited the Queens house especially to photograph this staircase....they were the first unsupported helical stairs built in England. V2 is a wide angle view captured with my fisheye lens
Have a great day.....

I was expecting to get arrested for loitering...spent ages there waiting for the odd minute where the stairwell was void of people so I could quickly capture a clean image

I don't think the England team were in any danger of that!

Brilliant pictures, Colleen - worth the wait.

Wonderful images - for artistic licence I would like to see v2 with the window at right 'cloned' out ? But they are a joy to view - thanks for taking us there!
I used to live on the Isle of Dogs opposite Greenwich and many happy childhood days were spent walking through the tunnel to the other side and visiting the Park , the Queen's House, the Naval Museum etc .....Eileen

I seem to be in the minority, again. It's V2 for me. I have spent ages flicking between these images trying to determine why I prefer V2; initially, I thought it might be something to do with plug holes i.e. in the Northern hemispher the water swirls one way and in the Southern hemispher it swirls the other. However, I think it is to do with the softer light in V2; both are excellent!!!
