Here are some of the pairs sculptures in Confederation Park, lit up for Winterlude. This brings my series to a close for this year- a month and a week after I started!

  16. These are so pretty, even more so with the light!

  17. Wow the lighting is a nice touch. My first thought was would that generate heat?

  18. That last sculpture is impressive!

  20. Really a 'gran finale', bravo!

  21. It has been an amazing tour!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Has it been that long? Really? Love the mountain goats!

  23. @Halcyon: they certainly are.

    @Janey: heat's not an issue. Placement of the lights is essential- a lot of them are above, as you can see in these shots, but also in front or especially behind the sculptures, and rotating so that the colours change gradually.

    @Marleen: I really liked how that last one looked lit up. It was one of my favourite sculptures this year.

    @Beth: thank you!

    @VP: it was a good way to wrap up.

    @RedPat: it certainly has!

    @Ciel: I tend to start a series and it can go on for awhile!
