Light’s Out in One Week at Longwood Garden

One week left to take in the spectacular “Light” installations designed by Bruce Munro. I would strongly suggest rearranging your schedule to accommodate a visit. I make a point to visit this garden often, as evidenced by my Flickr photo feed.  The bar is set high within this exquisite garden and for this exhibit to surpass it is quite the feat.  I’m not kidding, I had tears well up the first time I viewed this exhibit.  It is far more beautiful than what I captured on camera. It is an exhibit you have to see in person.

Longwood Garden on their website describes the exhibition:

Experience Longwood Gardens in a whole new Lightthrough the evocative and imaginative art of Bruce Munro, British artist and light designer.

Never before seen in the United States, this debut exhibition illuminates the gardens with large-scale, site-specific light installations.

Wander through a field of light reminiscent of flowers, discover a meadow of glowing towers changing hues, and delight in a shower of cascading raindrops fashioned from delicate lights as you are immersed in a new and truly unique garden experience. Both indoors and outdoors, by day and by night, Light will change the way you see gardens.

For those who cannot visit,  I offer these photos I took during several trips to view this installation. As I mentioned earlier in this post, my photos frustrate me as I don’t believe I’ve adequately captured the essence of this exhibit. However, for your perusal, are a few that give you a taste of this remarkable exhibit.

When the sun sets the “Light” show begins. The photo below was taken with a Canon EOS XTi with a tripod.

There is something quite magical about being in a garden during a midsummer night with lights guiding your path.  The photo below was taken with a Panasonic DMC-LX5 without a tripod. The light of lanterns illuminated the way to the Water Tower exhibit.

The main conservatory featured “Snowballs“:

and “Light Shower”. Both photos were taken with the Canon EOS XT1 while using a tripod.

What a spectacular exhibit it has been and I’m saddened by the knowledge that it will be gone soon. Kudos to the administrators of Longwood Garden for re-imagining ideas of art and gardening on a grand scale. Pierre would be proud of his garden today.

    You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation
    however I find this topic to be really something which I believe I would by no means understand.

    It sort of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I’m looking ahead for
    your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
