Chihuly at the Denver Botanic Gardens

I’ve known about glass artist Dale Chihuly for a little while – mainly because of his work at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Awesome stuff.

So, when an exhibition of his came to the Denver Botanic Gardens, I knew I had to go. It started in June, but I heard they were doing night tours (now sold out) starting in October, so I decided to wait until then to go.

I am SO glad I went – very, very cool time. If you’re in Denver, go before it’s gone; if you’re not, and an exhibit of his comes to town, go. You will not regret it.

Here is a small sampling of all the photos I took when I went.

These were awesome during the day, too, but the sunset behind them was too good to pass up.

night4
Same deal with this one.

night9
This worked a lot better at night with the reflection.

night12
Shadow play on this one looked awesome at night. During the day, fairly unremarkable, comparatively.

Awesomeness of these came out at night.
