Sonoran Light by Bruce Munro

March 11, 2016 , , , , ,

 

Last weekend I drove to Tempe to enjoy the light art show at the Desert Botanical Garden.  Bruce Munro installed this impressive exhibit which has been a popular temporary addition to the gardens.  Sonoran Light is incredible, immersive, and impossible to capture on a camera.  I have made an attempt above, but I highly recommend that the gentle readers see it in person.  The Field of Light is the most expansive of the installations.  It has vast sections of the gardens covered with light strings on the ground that change color and illuminate a large hill seen from a distance. There was a concert last Friday which was sold out, but still audible in the Field of Light, adding to the night’s special quality.

I arrived early in the day and took advantage of the day pass for just $5 added to the evening ticket price.  For a total of $30 I had hours of botanical fun in both day and night lighting.  There are many details not visible at night that I loved seeing during my day trip.  I took an Uber to the evening show, and was so happy I did. The parking lot becomes super jammed for the event, and I was tired from my hours of walking during the day. I happily waited by the entrance for my Uber driver while others drove themselves home.

Nice pics but blog navigation is very, very difficult. (Maybe you need a different theme?)
