The Amber Glass of Chihuly

As the sun was slowly setting when I was hiking around at the Desert Botanical Gardens, I spotted this gorgeous section of amber glass.  It is part of "The Sun" installation by Chihuly: The Nature of Glass. 

I like this photo because the sun light captures the glass and textures in such an interesting manner. Check out more Chihuly by selecting Chihuly under labels.

What an interesting angle for this shot of the wonders of Chihuly! I dislike the phrase, but it really is "eye candy," isn't it?!

c'est très beau, la lumiére du soleil sur le verre est magnifique, on dirait de l'or.
it is very nice, the light of the sun on the glass is splendid, they would say some gold.

I like the colors, it looks like golden rope.

Timeless beauty (within the object and your photography) - and a further reason why I prefer glass and not diamonds, as latter are burning into nothing after 800 degrees Celsius, while much warmer lightning creates glass.

I think part of the beauty is the way you display it in the photo.

Great shot Julie. I love the colors and textures. I have several close ups of "The Sun" but none show up in this color.
