  • *wow* These are incredible. I especially love the shadow of the dinosaur, but all the shapes and colors of the building are quite stunning, and you capture them beautifully.

  • I’m attending an awards ceremony that takes place around (and underneath) the dinosaur skeleton later this month. It’s always a spectacular event in a wonderful setting!

    Awesome pix.

  • Wonderful photos, Leonie. You seem able to see light in a way that lifts your photos far above the ordinary.

    That owl is straight from someone’s mythology, and the dinosaur stalks everyone’s dreams sooner or later.

  • that second picture is wow. they look like autumn leaves trying to pull free of their branches.

  • Hubby & I visited here when we on our honeymoon. My favorite part was the exhibit of all the deep sea creatures ~ like the stuff that lives miles & miles below the surface. Extremely interesting. Thanks for making me recall it :-)
