Porcelain Elephants

St. Louis Botanical Garden’s Lantern Festival. Thousands of porcelain plates were used to create this fountain.  This is a six second exposure using f22 to blur the water and add the “star burst” to the lights.

Cherry Tree Blossoms

My wife and I took an Easter Weekend walk around the Missouri Botanical Garden. As usual the Japanese Garden was spectacular. Early blooming trees provided the color and in the next few weeks the Tulips and other ground cover be out.

Flower Lantern

This summer’s Lantern Festival, held at the Missouri Botanical Garden, offers great opportunities to take some great photographs. Here is a simple flower taken in the dark.

Porcelain Stupas Pagoda

Missouri Botanical Garden’s Lantern Festival is hosting acres of illuminated displays. Here is one from a special evening only for photographers. This is the Porcelain Stupas Pagoda, constructed from more than 300,000 plates, bowls, spoons, teacups, ladles and wine cups.
