My favorite exhibit

My favorite picture that I took is above.

I think this was my favorite Chihuly exhibit at Cheekwood. I am sure it had something to do with the colors, but I also loved the fact it was sitting in the water, the shapes was all different and a lot of the trees reflected in the water have the same color palette.

Cheekwood-Water exhibits

I love, love, love pictures of trees reflected in the water. Pictures of fall colors on trees reflected in the water are even better! These were all taken  in the same reflecting pool (or ponds) of water. 
A close up of some of the Chihuly glass on the water.
View from a little further back to see more of the glass. I love that I got such a perfect reflection of the trees. 

I think one of the purposes of this type of exhibit was to combine the man made glass with the absolute beauty of the surroundings. I think this picture reflects that. Well, all the exhibits were beautifully done, but since I like water pictures so much I liked this one a lot. The pictures I post next time will include my favorite exhibit.

More Cheekwood Pics

Here are a few more pictures I took at Cheekwood from the Chihuly glass exhibit. 
I love the way the glass pieces were blended into the environment of the botanical gardens.

Just gorgeous, I was so happy we got to see both exhibits while they were in town.
