Photo Friday - Week 31

On Wednesday I enjoyed a family day out to Kew Gardens, and although photography only played a small part in the trip, I did get a few shots I was pleased with.

This is the Davies Alpine House, an unusual and eye-catching greenhouse.

Pentax K-5, Pentax DA16-45mm f/4 lens @ 16mm, f/8, 1/125s, +0.5EV, ISO200, handheld, polariser.

In the Palm House, there were, unsurprisingly, lots of beautiful palms, and I particularly liked the colours and patterns seen when looking up through the leaves.

In the same greenhouse, this Fig leaf caught my eye in a similar way.

We're hoping to go back and explore more, as it's far too big to see everything during one visit, and they have an exhibition of David Nash sculptures there too at the moment, which we really didn't get to see much at all.
