Taking photos is a favorite pastime of LongHouse visitors and we love to see people in every corner of the garden with their cameras out capturing a blend of art, nature and themselves as a keepsake of their time here.

It is deeply gratifying for us to see images of the gardens when we are tagged in photos shared by guests.  We want to see more and share them with our readers!  Enter your images in the LongHouse Photo Challenge and we will share them here on our website as well as our social media.  Submit your photos to info@longhouse.org and feel free to include a favorite memory or story of your time in the gardens.

Enjoy these photos that have already been entered by some of our LongHouse friends.  Thank you, and we hope to reopen soon!

 Carol Whitehead submitted this lovely shot of a glimpse of The Red Garden.

 

Another image by Carol Whitehead features the fountain and Dale Chihuly's "Cobalt Reeds" at the head of Peter's Pond.  Each year the "Cobalt Reeds" appear in a different location.

 

We love this image captured by Christine DeAngelo of the Black Mirror water feature.  Christine describes this image as "reflections of last spring." 

 

These beautiful Red Garden photos are from Elizabeth Heath who visited us on a trip to the US from Australia, wow!

 

 

The three images above were submitted by Kim King capture the many facets of LongHouse and show 1) First Lawn with lawn chairs ready to welcome guests, 2) The Lear Memorial with Shin Sang-ho's "Dream of Africa" totems and 3) a musical interlude at one of our Summer Benefits. 

Troia Schonlau sent us this photo of herself posing with a beautiful Jun Kaneko sculpture that was part of our Summer Benefit Art Auction.  Troia wrote, "it was so amazing to finally see the grounds!" 

Lisa Makman sent along this family photo of an afternoon well spent at LongHouse.  The kids are wearing rose colored glasses that we passed out to our young visitors (they were extras left over from our Summer Benefit).

What a fun photo!  This image was sent to us from Daniel Young and he writes about it, "the late painter Florence Goodstein-Shapiro and the ceramic artist Emma Katz prepare to go for a ride at the LongHouse on horses created by Shin Sang-ho."
