Portcullis, originally uploaded by ruth and johnny, london uk.

Today’s photo was chosen for its connection to Tudor history. Today, January 25th, is the anniversary of the marriage of Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn; that happened in 1533. A little more than three short years later, she was executed, having been charged with adultery, incest, and treason.

Today’s picture, a menacing shot of a portcullis, is from Hever Castle, best known as Anne’s childhood home.

What I like about this picture is the angle, the inclusion of the brickwork and the vines, and the place it was taken.

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.
