massive amounts of CHIHULY at DENVER BOTANIC GARDENS.....!

I recently visited a few BFFs in Denver, CO, and one of the top things on my list of things to do while there for a short weekend was to see the Dale Chihuly exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens.

For a few months beforehand I had seen several pics on social media from my buddies that live there of this unique installation of Chihuly's work. The artist dropped in colorful glass works of art throughout the 24 acre space. The gardens to begin with are quite breathtaking and expansive....and with the addition of this manmade constructed, yet still organic pieces, it was something else. I really loved the juxtaposition of nature vs. structure.......hard edges vs. soft....transparency playing off one another.....reflections, colors and scale pushing boundaries. So, here are a bunch of pics I shot to share....enjoy!

patterns in NATURE...by photographer KACPER KOWALSKI...!

I came across photographer Kacper Kowalski's exquisite group of aerial shots of Fall foliage on Time's website. Kowalski flew alone - performing both as the pilot AND the photographer to capture and share these amazing landscapes in his country of Poland.

The patterns and colors are so inspiring and once again remind me that you don't have to look far for inspiration.....nature is and will always be my greatest muse.
