A Visit to the Cleveland Botanical Garden

Last Sunday I had the pleasure to visit the exhibition "Orchid Mania: This Side of Paradise" at Cleveland Botanical Garden. The hundreds of blooms featured on the Glasshouse are an exquisite show of colors, shapes and size. This was my first visit to the Botanical Garden and also my first opportunity to photograph so many beautiful orchids with a DSLR camera.  I used to photograph my mother’s orchids with a point-and-shoot camera, but it was hard to acquire a desired result.

It was definitively a delightful Sunday afternoon. I got so much inspiration for my next sugar flowers, but I couldn't resist to share the photos with you before I make them. I hope the photos inspire you too.
