Buffalo Botanical Gardens under Crescent Moon, South Park at Dusk

Buffalo Botanical Gardens under Crescent Moon

As the sun has set and the sky tuned in some subtle but perfect colors over the Buffalo Botanical Gardens the crescent moon provided a beautiful cherry on top of the cake for this scene. The illumination of the interior along with the two outside lamps balanced with the sky very nicely too and I was happy to watch and wait for the best overall light balance.

The South Park Conservatory was designed by Lord & Burnham Co. and modeled after the Crystal Palace at Kew Gardens in England. Upon opening in 1900, the conservatory was the third largest public greenhouse in the United States.
