I really love the ironwork in Versailles, stunning doorway.

This means horse's head, doesn't it? So, why does it have antlers??? I am not up on heraldic interpretations, I guess.

It's a fantastic gated doorway with great details above and wonderful craftsmanship on the metal gate!

I would never have put those two photos together, not sure which I like best. This is a wonderful view beyond the door, but the angle of your link is stunning.

Glimpses through such beautiful gates as these always fascinate me Ciel, what goes on behind here??

Une belle entree et une jolie lumiere dans la cour interieure.

The outside is a bit dark while the private courtyard is flooded in sun. I want in.

Tres fine cette porte accentuee par la lumiere douce.

The back light makes the gate glow golden.

Yes, when I got back from my trip I was kind of surprised at just how many doors and windows I had shot while there! But you guys do doorways so good it was hard to resist!

Loree said...

It's a lovely entrance.

Kaori said...

Is this an entrance into the courtyard? Lovely!

Beautiful Horse's head entrance. Of course a horse's head in your bed is a horse of a different color entirely:)
