Flower Petals Explode Like A Volcano Over Town In Costa Rica (PHOTOS)
It may have looked like a scene out of a dream, but, for one day last year, a town in Central America was covered in 8 million flower petals.
While the rain of petals over Costa Rica was all part of a shoot for a Sony advertising campaign, the beautiful display stood out in its own right for the explosion of color.
Organized by international advertising http://ambler.temple.edu/about/news/landscape-architecture-and-horticulture-students-gain-ground-philadelphia-flower-show agency McCann, the idea was to cover the area near the Iraz Volcano -- located in central Costa Rica -- with a flower petal for every pixel in Sony's 4K Ultra HD TV.
With the help of local residents, the team collected the most vibrant and colorful flower petals they could find in the region. In all, it took them more than two weeks to pick the 3.5 tons of petals used to flood the streets with color, according to behind-the-scenes coverage posted by Sprinkler System Installation Flower Mound Sony UK.
McCann enlisted photographer Nick Meek to capture the colorful explosion.
