Horse Guards Parade
It’s a daily ceremony at St James’s Palace, Westminster. Remember the old children’s nursery rhyme “they’re changing guards at Buckingham Palace!”?
I followed the guards from Buckingham Palace along the Mall, on my bike, and as they turned in towards the back of St James’s Palace I chose this view. The moment they trot through the shadows of the trees along the road and into the huge parade ground. I left the background blurred on purpose. This is all about the horses and the guards in their shiny armour and the plumes in their helmets and the ceremony of Royalty!
