I recently spent the day at Kew Gardens in London and took my smallest lens (a Canon 18-55mm) to practice some landscape images - something I definitely need to do more of. ⠀
The Temperate House is the largest of the glasshouses found in Kew and recently went through a five year restoration project which saw the entire building replanted, all the glass replaced and stone/metal work repaired. The building was completely closed during this time and reopened again last year. I was fortunate enough to visit this place many times when I was a child and it is safe to the say the transformation achieved is pretty phenomenal. ⠀
There is a staircase present which allows you to climb to the upper level, which is where I took this angled image. I was able to capture this shot with no people present - which is particularly rare - and with the morning sunlight bursting through the glass to illuminate the plantlife below.
