Denver Botanic Gardens

Late afternoon of my last day in Denver was spent at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Which ended up being much fancier than I had expected.

A large amount of time, money, and effort has been poured into this place and it shows. Lots of areas to explore, sculptures to admire, and out of focus photos to take.

Looking through one of the many sculptures

Interestingly; all of the water features contained some kind of blackish dye. Which really helped with the water reflections. Not sure if that was the intended purpose, or whether it was to stop you seeing the normal mess that is the bottom. I’m guessing the later.

Another Henry Moore Sculpture

There is currently a large number of sculptures around the grounds that are part of a Henry Moore exhibit. Turns out that he first designs and creates a miniature piece of his work. Then gets one of his apprentices to create a much larger version of it for him.

I think I need to find myself some apprentices…
