Continuously changing lights made this display interesting and well suited to video, capturing it as a single image was a challenge. I posted a similar image taken during daylight as “Frog and Dragon (Unlit)”. Hope that you enjoy both images. On display during the Lantern Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis, Missouri.
The lantern is made from medicine bottles denoting the importance and prominence of traditional Chinese medicine based on plants and other natural substances. The bottles are filled with different colored liquids to achive the colors seen here. On display during the Lantern Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis, Missouri.
This display contained many moving elements and color changes that we miss by photographing it as a single frame. The dark area to the left in the image contains white storks that light up and are missing from this view.
Image captured while attending photographer night at the Missouri Botanical Gardens, St. Louis, Missouri, May 23-August 23, 2015. It is the only night that you can take a tripod or monopod into the gardens in the evening when the displays are lit.
I like to think of this scene as the Defenders of the Great Wall during its construction. Seen at the Missouri Botanical Gardens, St. Louis, Missouri, May 23-August 23, 2015.
