Eden Project

A couple of weeks ago I visited the Eden Project. I haven’t been for a couple of years, and it was interesting to go in winter this time. Although the biomes are still heated, it is still winter for the plants and they are at different stages of their life cycle. It was slightly disappointing that most of plants lacked colourful flowers or buds, though.

To get us started, here’s the obligatory Eden Project panorama.

On the day we went, it was -4°C outside and my camera immediately steamed up as soon as we went into the tropical biome because it was too cold. It took too long for the camera to warm up to ambient temperature, so I didn’t get to take any pictures at all.

However, the humidity was much lower in the Mediterranean biome and so I was able to get the camera out without it becoming wet in my hands. Always a bonus for electrical items.

Most of these pictures were taken with a Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens. Exterior shots taken with Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens. Body was a Canon 600D.
