Nita and I were invited to shoot Under A Harvest Moon at Powell Gardens on a gorgeous September evening. We arrived to the aroma of smoked pig and was greeted by Chef Howard Hanna of the Rieger Grill & Exchange. I covered the wine reception and shot guests while Nita had the pleasure of shooting the gardens.
At dinner time we all converged on the open air Missouri Barn where Chef Howard talked to us about his exquisite dishes prepared from the local gardens. The seating was at two long tables which gave the feeling of a Sunday Night dinner with the family. We were fortunate to sit across the table from the senior horticulturist for the gardens. While everyone kept asking him questions about the complex job of maintaining such large gardens, I kept asking him about the dead spots in my lawn.
I could do this all the time! Here are a few pics but if you want to see all the images from this amazing evening check it out: Under A Harvest Moon
