Hello Everyone,

I have just spent a most enjoyable day, watching, on t.v., the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

They look such a happy couple and their happiness was shared by thousands of people who had camped out on the streets of London to witness this royal wedding.

I would like to post this shot, the only link that I could find, of the Life Guards as they paraded through London. Although the weather was not as good, on that day, as it has been today, I hope you will be able to sense some of the grandeur of the moment.

I wonder if some of these men were mounted in the ceremony, today. I hope so!

What a spendid day it has been, with lots of romance and a lot of pageantry.
My good wishes to you all, Bev :-)

nice topicial image Bev but could have been lots better with some cloning etc the long white line and the pillar on the left could go also take the nearside pavement out

Hi Beverley. Congratulations to you on this special moment. The horses and their life guards look so good in their uniform. Nice composition with good contrast , colors and sharpness. I used to go to London to watch these guards near 10 Downing street and this brought memories. Cheers.

Hi Beverly,
Memorable day indeed, how could you not post something with a tag like yours!. Nice shot of the Horse guards parading, taken in 2009 you can certainly see how much you have improved your images in the past couple of years, probably more to the improved equipment than anything else. Great shot and a good link to the Royal occasion. Hope you enjoyed it. Best wishes

Nice composition and gr8 focus. Congratulations on this wonderful event. The entire world was glued on to TV today to watch the wedding. This pic. would have looked better if you had the entire horse on the LHS in the frame. This is my POV and regards.

Sorry to hear that you watched the event of the century on TV. You were not invited either?! I wasn't either and I would like to know why? This is a very nice capture. The details are so crisp even on what looks like a rainy day. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Bev,

A very appropriate shot for the day. Well-handled shot and with nice composition. Fantastic color and detail. Well done. TFS.
