Palm House in Early Spring
Experts consider Kew’s Palm House to be the most important surviving Victorian iron and glass structure in the world. It has over 16,000 panes of glass. Color, texture, lines, light - palm leaves have it all.
Ginger is one of those plants that comes in dozens of varieties with each being interesting in its own way.
Each represents a different family.
This is the Palm House at Kew Gardens. The wide angle lens makes for a wonderful sweeping shot.
I like the distortion of the wide angle lens. I kept this lens on the whole time I was inside the conservatory.
There is a wonderful second level to the Palm House. There are great angles with the wrought iron, glass and plants.

A Little Bit of Green
I love palm tree leaves when there is light behind them.
Color & Light
Even when they are not all green they are still interesting photographically.
