The new Dale Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum at the Seattle Center

The largest museum in the world devoted to glass artist Dale Chihuly opened this past summer at Seattle Center, located at the base of the Seattle Space Needle. The Dale Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum is truly stunning and from a photographers viewpoint is an incredible combination of light, textures and contrasts. The museum also pushes your camera gear as an ISO in the 1,600 range is required for the interior pieces to have any chance of reasonable depth of field. The Nikon D800 really showed its’ strength here as can be seen from the photographs.

This outing was one of the first times I really had a chance to use my new 15mm Sigma fisheye lens in a really proper situation and came away pleasantly surprised by the quality of the images. Very cool lens!

The Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum is a must see on your next visit.
