Denver Botanic Gardens, September 2014
My photography doesn't do it justice AT ALL as we were there in the worst conditions possible for taking decent photos ~ midday, bright, glaring sunshine, etc.
I should know better!
The best photos I took were the ones below ~ in the shade!
I didn't see a name on this display but many of them were titled.
Below: "Turquoise Reeds, Marlins & Persian Towers:"
Below: "White Tower:"
My favorite of all ~ "Float Boat"
I could have taken a million angles of this & they all would have been amazing. It was brillant.
Nearby, the "Blue & Purple Boat"
and the "Monet Pool Fiori:"
There was a photo of this display at night which was magnificent.
The exhibit is on display thru the end of November. I would love to go back under better (less harsh) light conditions.
Below, the one display it seemed appropriate to photograph in full sunlight: "Summer Sun:"
Finally a couple photos from the gardens themselves.
Beautiful succulent container.
Love these pillars.
Above & below: "Hive Garden Bistro"
Notice the materials are natural: lotus pods, pine cones, brick, etc. Things that could easily be assembled from the garden.
Wrapping up, it was a wonderful outing, the glass art phenomenal. If this exhibit (or another similar one) travels to your area, I highly recommend seeing it. I wasn't sure what to expect beforehand but it surpassed my imagination a hundred times over. Superb, superb, superb!!!!!
