Drenched palace guard

Drenched palace guard

They had been out by the triathlon activities and suddenly turned around and marched back into the palace. I guess their break was over!

Their helmets look great, but may not be waterproof, that is why they suddenly went in:) V

An impressive shot of these guards. I like the contrast of the old spiked helmets and modern automatic weapons. "V"

Great photo of the Palace Guard. Reminds me of 1966 when I went guard dressed in these old uniforms!

Nice capture of these wet guards!

At least they have raincoats to protect them from the rain. They look young to me though...

Love their fancy hats (though I'd hate to sit on one by accident).
