The Tulip Staircase

By capto
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.
