Here are a few other shots from around the botanical gardens in St. Louis. They have a climate-controlled geodesic dome that they grow tropical plants in. It’s really cool inside, and also looks really cool on the outside:
I was really proud of this shot; the sun was shining through the trees, but the color on the flowers was gorgeous. So I used the wimpy on-camera flash to light the flowers, but still got a really awesome backlit effect from the sun. I didn’t know if it was going to turn out or not, but it did!
