Longwood Gardens Christmas In The Conservatory

The Christmas Displays inside the Longwood Gardens Conservatory are always a little different each year. And this year they were amazing as always. The problem is it is usually so crowded that it is hard to get images without huge crowds in the images. Here is a sampling of some of the displays through this very large conservatory. All images shot with a 14-140mm Panasonic m43 lens with an Olympus OM-D MkI. Some images are stacked or multi-image panos. One of the challenges is it is usually so crowded it is hard to get images without people in the way. Also the building is HUGE! So this post is just showing a very very small visual reference as to the Conservatory’s decorations this year. Hopefully it is not too many for you to look through, but I was trying to give you a visual reference to some of the displays there.

    • Thanks! The Conservatory alone covers a lot of ground. 20 indoor gardens within a 4.5 acre (1.8 hectares) group of heated greenhouses. Longwood’s Conservatory contains 4,600 different types of plants and trees, as well as fountains. But at Christmas time it is decorated throughout for Christmas. Which adds more to what is there already. But the downside is it is very crowded. The whole garden covers over 1,000 acres. So outdoors is quite spectacular at Christmas also. Especially at night with lights and displays. It is always different every year. But is a fun place to photograph!

    • Thank you! It is an amazing place to photograph anytime of year. But they really go all out for Christmas. The Conservatory is about 4.5 acres indoors. The whole gardens are over 1,000 acres full of gardens and meadows, etc.
