Chihuly Chandelier, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

Dale Chihuly is one of the most famous GLASS blowers in the world. There is an exhibit of his work at the MFA in Boston. It was cool to see his work again. We saw an exhibit of his work in Omaha. I took this shot without a flash and without a tripod and no processing. It is part of one of his chandeliers. I have more shots that need some processing because of the low light.

These are great photos! He did the two fantastic chandeliers/sculptures at the Atlantis in Nassau…Temple of the Sun and Temple of the Moon. Both are in casinos…the only reason I went into the casinos was to gawk at these works of art!

We were able to see one of his exhibits in Nashville last year. I really enjoy his work but to me it is as challenging to photograph his work as it is to shoot Christmas lights. The glass just seems to glow. Thanks for sharing and you too great pics. My favorite is the last one. I always enjoy his boats.

He does amazing work. It’s so fun to try to photograph. You’ve got some really nice shots.

You captured the sculptures’ beauty perfectly! I love the last two…the colors really pop off the dark background! The first two really have great lighting…it makes the details shine! Beautiful work!
