The Park At Night

For my final posts from Winterlude, we have Confederation Park at night, taken on various evenings during the festival. I am beginning with two takes on the sculpture Face, which I showed at the beginning of the series. A projector shone patterns of light onto the large canvas of a blank face. Onlookers could even have their own face, captured by a camera, projected onto the face itself, but the patterns caught my eye most.

Here we have more of the large outdoor sculptures.

As well as the smaller sculptures designed for photo ops. I think these sculptures look at their best in the night like this, with the lights highlighting them.

This is one of the blocks I showed you early on containing lost mittens.

This was another one, an evolving sculpture lit up. It started as a slab of ice, and anyone could come along and add frozen cubes of coloured ice to its surface.


  1. Wow, these shots put the whole thing in a new perspective and they are beautiful! Nice shooting! And thanks for sharing all these fine sculptures!

  2. Stunning! The coloured lights give the sculptures something magical.

  3. So nice they lightened up the sculptures in the evening.

  4. Amazing in the evening. I adore butterflies and this one is gorgeous.
