Desert Wildflower Towers

Happy Friday!  I hope you enjoy "Desert Wildflower Towers" created by Chihuly. 

This was taken at sunset and shows the silhouette of the glass art among the live agave and desert plants.  A natural fit.  

The installation is called Chihuly: the Nature of Glass and is currently at the Desert Botanical Gardens until May 2009.  To see other Chihuly photos, select Chihuly under Labels.

Nice backlighting and exposure, and what Lenola DP said too.

Jacob said...

Amazing...from that angle and with the light, I thought they were real at first. Great shot!

I have to read the post to understand that they're not real...
They're wondeful and backlighting has a great effect!

This is so beautiful. I wish the exhibit was going to be there longer. Maybe we can make it in time. I love his artwork - thank you for sharing it.

This is gorgeous! Love all that shinning on your composition. Just great!

A very clever shot!

The backlight really makes these look so alien.

Oh shucks, I was actually a little deflated to find that these are not natural objects. :-)
