I remember visiting this one, but the way you captured this image presents it in a totally different way!
God bless you!

This reminds me of the coaches I saw in London years ago but, I love the way you've photographed this shot. Wonderful.

Kate said...

The angle and point-of-view of this photo is most unusual and very effective.

Kathy said...

These beauties are works of art in themselves.

I think this would be an interesting museum. Riding in coaches is not very comfy, but you sure look good in ones like these! :)

You always have the richest tones in your pics!

Wow! These are gorgeous! You've captured them beautifully and the setting looks to be stunning as well! All in all, despite the splendor I think I still prefer my old Toyota.

I think Cezar took the words out of my computer! Love this place and this is a fine composition!

And no, I don't climb mountains! I take pictures of them! Heh, heh!

I really like the angle of this shot. There'll be carriages out in London this weekend too, though it looks like it will be in the rain!

Can you imagine Lowell driving up a path on his Colorado mountain in one of these? :-)

I've always been impressed when you post photos of these coaches. I like the unusual angle you have done on this shot ... it says so much about the coaches and the building all in one shot.
