Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Abstract

This week Patti has asked that we go “abstract” so our viewers can use their imagination.

My photos this week are of Christmas lights at Brookgreen Gardens.  Each year Brookgreen presents “Night of a Thousand Candles”.  The paths throughout the sculpture gardens are lined with candles and lights as well as carolers and there’s even a bagpipe group that strolls throughout the gardens.  There are entertainment tents with choirs and bands, a characterization of Scrooge and a presentation of the Gullah language.

Because there are candles in the fountain pools as well as the reflection from the lights in the pools, it’s hard to tell where the actual lights end and the reflections begin.

The sculptures are surrounded  by lights also.  The Fountain of the Muses is my favorite spot in the gardens and I believe the lights here are the most awe inspiring.  The lights are placed above but they reflect into the pool below so that it looks as if the pool is a bottomless abyss.  

Needless to say, I already have my tickets for opening night.

    • Tina:No, tripods aren’t allowed because of the high volume of attendees.  We’re going tomorrow night as Thursdays aren’t as crowded.  Fridays and Saturdays are to be avoided if possible. I haven’t been to Magnolia for the lights.  Will have to check it out. Sent from Mail for Windows 10 From: Photography in PearlsSent: Wednesday, December 4, 2019 4:41 PMTo: photographyinpearls@gmail.comSubject: [Photography in Pearls] Comment: "Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Abstract"
