Vaults often are made from triangles, like this one in the central staircase at Azay-le-Rideau castle in the Loire Valley.

I love vaults, and this of the main hall of Chenonceau castle is particularly beautiful with the elegant, irregular "jumping" of the finishing stones:

Another castle, another set of triangles: the "gardens of love" at Villandry castle (the one with the famous Renaissance vegetable gardens). If I remember correctly, the triangular arrangement symbolises passionate love.

Others have to make do with a simple hedge cut carefully, like here at Langeais castle:

And then there are those who have it in the natural way, like these cypresses at Chinon castle.

I must say, being member of this awesome community made me take quite some more untypical pictures than usual on our holiday trip. This proved to be very useful - but I wouldn't have thought of it without thinking of the possible usage for a prompt... :o)


What marvelous choices.

I love this community! I learn so much, and feel much more educated than before.
Thanks, and I fully agree! :o)
The vaulted ceilings are to die for! as are the gardens of love. I agree that you do find yourself taking photos that may come in handy. You never know when they will meet the needs of a prompt. I love being part of this community. It is always interesting to see what the other members will post. You see things that you would never normally have the chance to see.
Ooh, lovely, all of these. I particularly like all the ceilings. *wants for my house* (Which would look utterly ridiculous but still...)
I love the ceilings - but the garden ones are even cleverer answers to the prompt!
A wonderful collection:)
Goodness, so many beautiful shots. I love vaults too but I've never been able to take a decent one. Not one and I have many. And that amazing gardens. Great choices.
