the blue gate is blue again


The gate by the Djurgården Bridge has been renovated. It was made in 1840 of cast iron and paid for by king Oscar I. Johan Adolf Hawerman designed the gate. It was once part of the fence that surrounded the royal hunting ground Djurgården.

An what a blue! A relly beautiful gate, enhanced by the unusual color.

Stunning! Love the blue. I don't think I have ever seen this color on a gate before.

The shade of blue is very nice. Hope it lasts!

Wow, this looks really pretty, and has got a very nice blue color.( Do you see changes in your city now after the "news" about the Royal weddings?? )

The blue is really vivid. However, I dont't think it had to much to do with the royal wedding coming up. The changes are more around where the wedding will take place I presume.
