Dallas Arboretum – Chihuly Nights

Canon 5D Mk3, Canon 17-40L F4 @ 27mm F4, 1/100s ISO 25600, handheld

The Dallas Arboretum has some fantastic night time displays of the Chihuly glass sculptures which look very cool at night.  These are on display during the daytime, but daytime does not give it justice.  You have to pay extra for the night time tickets, but if you have a yearly membership the Chihuly Nights tickets are discounted significantly.   The above picture has several pieces in water which causes the glass to have a really neat mirror image on the water.  The above was taken handheld at an amazing ISO 25600 and the 5DMk3 took it without a hitch.   Amazing camera.    Also, I was able to use my recently acquired 17-40L for a great ultra wide view.  Hope you enjoyed this picture, and hope you get to make it out to the Dallas Chihuly Nights– They are in town from May 2012 until October 2012. Be sure to bring mosquito repellent!
