Missouri Botanical Garden

This is one of my favorite scenes at the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis. Every Christmas season they decorate the grounds for an event called the “Garden Glow.” As always this is an extravaganza of sights and sounds. You can follow the trails around the grounds for one amazing holiday scene after another. In front of the Climatron the reflecting pools are filled with glowing displays that flash to the sounds of the “Home Alone” and Trans-Siberian Orchestra soundtracks. I never realized how good these recordings were until I visited the Garden Glow.

This little display is hidden in a doorway of the gatehouse to the original property. This is a reminder to take your time and inspect things from various angles when photographing a subject.
