Snap: Through the Colonnade

I often like to take views through some kind of a frame such as a doorway or arch. Today I have picked out some pictures to join in with Helena's Snap that all look through the columns of a colonnade.
The first was taken on our trip to Highclere Castle looking back towards the magnificent house from the folly Jackdaw's Castle.

The next three were all taken on our trip to Greenwich and all of the imposing old Royal Naval College designed by Sir Christopher Wren. The weather was not good and it had been raining for a while which adds to the effect of this view from The Painted Hall towards the Chapel. 

The following two look towards the Thames from the Painted Hall.

Then from the Chapel.


  1. the columns really provide a dramatic framing

  2. I like all of your framed shots, not just the ones in this post. In the second photo, the rain gives the effect of looking at a pool, rather than just wet flagstones.

  3. I echo the sentiments of a very dramatic SNAP collection. You really have such a good eye in capturing the detail views of the buildings.

  4. great the first castle

  5. Me too, love the one of Highclere.

  6. Oh! me too. All fabulous. You do have a gorgeous eye for composition.
