Phipps Conservatory

During my trip to Pittsburgh a couple weeks ago, I visited the Phipps Conservatory, which is one of the better botanical gardens in the U.S. (or so I read). It was a lovely, if humid, way to pass two hours. There was certainly no shortage of photographic material, especially because of the temporary exhibit of Chihuly glass sculptures scattered throughout the vegetation. They really gave a focal point for the photos, and provided delightful bursts of color. I present for you here a couple of my favorite shots. More will be on Flickr soon.

  1. Those sculptures are gorgeous. I saw a show on the Discovery channel once about how they are made and how they are moved ans set up in different places. It takes semi trucks to move parts of the big ones... amazing. What a neat treat for you to see them in person.
