Serenity


I took this photo in August while at the Missouri Botanical Gardens here in STL. There was a glass show over the summer and this red piece was part of the exhibit. I really like the way the red color reflects in the water. It is still really cold here in STL and many are still without power. I thought this would be a nice break from the cold. Tomorrow I will begin posting some of the picures that I took after we ventured out into the cold and ice.

Looks great - did it cost a lot of Monet to get in? :)

Greetings from St. Paul, Minnesota! And, I bet that glass piece is a Dale Chihuly, right? I adore the work of that man!! Very pretty photo; good composition. I'd like to add my welcome to you as you join the daily photo family!

Beautiful, relaxing shot...Welcome from Joplin (good to see another Missourian!)

Kate in St. Paul tipped me off that there is a little bit of Seattle dangling over the water in your photo today. That sure looks like a Chihuly piece, even from a distance. He is the most well known glass artist from the Pacific Northwest and a Seattle native son.

Welcome to the City Daily Photo community! My faves of your photos so far are the arch reflections and the wonderful parking meters! I look forward to getting to know your city. A friend's son is a news photo journalist in SL, so I've wanted to see some of the turf he covers. Have fun with it!

Yes this is a Chihuly piece his exhibit was here for a few months and all his pieces were very beautiful. There was a special "night" viewing of his work where many pieces were lit but I was unable to go in time to take some pictures... :-( I know they would have been beautiful. Again thanks everyone for the warm welcome!!!

This really is the nicest picture in your blog, worth coming back twice to check again!

I didn't realise that it could get so cold in St. Louis, is the ice and snow unusual?
