Photographing Edmonton: The Muttart Conservatory

posted on 11th of september, 2016

Canadian winters are famous for being long and cold, really long and cold. So how can you bring a camera out when it's -30? You really can't. I've tried and literally frozen up leaving me with nothing to show.
So if you're here in those long dark months, what do you do?
My mom's favorite place (and somewhere I really like too) is to visit the Muttart Conservatory, a beautiful little oasis in the river valley.

I have never visited Canada but has a schoolmate who has migrated there. From her description, Canada can indeed be very very cold!

I've just visited the website of Muttart Conservatory and it is indeed a lovely place to visit, especially in winter. It will be on my list of places to visit should I ever have a chance to visit Canada! Thank you for sharing!

The Flowers Dome and Cloud Domes at the Singapore's Gardens by the Bay is similar in concept to the Conservatory. Do come visit if you have a chance! [imgr]76088136[/imgr]
