Gateway to a Walled Garden

The walled garden concerned is at Norton Priory.  CJ has blogged about it and I shall doubtless do some more posts too.  This gate really captured my fancy because I love gates and doorways.  I'm not a person of great imagination so I don't look and wonder what lies behind.  I just love them for that which they are.

  1. Oh, very nice! I probably would think about what is beyond those gates, but the gates themselves are worth the look!

  2. Oh, I'm sure you know that I love this. Especially that first photo of it. I want to walk to it, let my hands reach out in a story and walk through. You know?

    Glad you posted these.

  3. This gate really is a wonderful piece of art "in itself". But it also makes me curious and tickles my imagination. And don't tell me you don't look and wonder what is behind because you seem to have checked that out! (Taking pictures from both sides...) ;)

  7. Well captured, GB. As anyone who has tried photographing gates like that knows it's not easy to get such a great shot.

  8. Love the first shot. Gates like that are surely designed to welcome and entice.
