Amazing Sculpture to Shoot

Not only is there an opportunity to shoot acres of gorgeous flowers at Chatfield Farms, but there is also an incredible sculpture to immerse yourself in and shoot!
The sculpture is called “One Fell Swoop by Patrick Dougherty”

Dougherty’s immersive sculpture at Chatfield Farms in Littleton, CO is created by weaving flexible saplings and branches into a complex and whimsical architectural form.

The site-specific sculpture was created over the course of three weeks with the help of staff and volunteers. Willow saplings and branches used in the installation were harvested from Colorado locations, including Chatfield Farms. Visitors may view and move through the work in a grassy clearing near the Earl J. Sinnamon Center and the Deer Creek Stables.

Bring the kids! Great opportunity for family portraits!

Ansel Adams – “The Early Years” at Botanic Gardens, now through October 11

Discover the early work of renowned landscape photographer Ansel Adams in this exhibition of intimate yet majestic photos of the American West.  Known best for his high-contrast photos made in the 1970s and 1980s, Adams’ earlier prints feature a softer focus, smaller scale and warmer tones, providing a glimpse into the evolution of the photographer’s signature style. This collection spans the 1920s-1950s and features a number of Adams’ finest photographs of Yosemite National Park and other Western landscapes.

Enjoy the Ansel Adams exhibition and then explore the gardens to create your own photographic masterpieces!  For more information go HERE
