Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

Posted a little later than planned, as I’ve been tucked up in bed with the flu this week, this is my contribution to this week’s photo challenge exploring interesting juxtaposition and unexpected pairings.

I like this picture taken from the viewing platform at the top of the Rainforest Biome at the Eden Project, which looks just like an aerial view across the jungle canopy.  There’s even a tiny tin-roofed shack hiding amongst the foliage.  But the backdrop to this apparently natural scene is a futuristic-looking plastic and steel geodesic dome, which keeps out the English weather.

    So nice to escape to a place like this while waiting for the opportunity to do the “real thing.” When I have the opportunity I go to a botanical garden in the middle of winter and pretend I am in the Caribbean 🙂

      The Eden Project is in Cornwall, just outside the town of St Austell. Its an amazing place, especially if you’re a gardener or plant fan, but worthwhile even if you’re not. Spend a whole day here at least.

    Great response to the theme. I hope you feel better soon!

      Thanks, it was just one of that takes forever to shake off. Thinking about the tropical warmth inside the biome helped though!
