Glow


I went, for the first time, to the annual winter illuminations at RHS Harlow Carr. This year it is entitled 'Glow' - and they certainly did. In past years, friends have told me it was a bit underwhelming so I never bothered to make the journey on a cold winter evening. But I was in the mood for an outing and the weather forecast was improving after daytime rain so I hopped in the car. I'm glad I went. Perhaps they've made it a bit bigger and grander this year... there was plenty to enjoy and the gardens, familiar by day, take on an other-worldly aspect with the lights.

  1. I can just hear those underwhelmed Yorkshire folk "It were alright if tha likes colours". Seriously, I think sometimes taking photographs can heighten our enjoyment of visual spectacle by forcing us to look more closely and observe more accurately. I particularly like the way you've used the darkness at the edges of the first three shots to isolate and frame the brightly lit trees.

  6. It sure makes the gardens look pretty. Our gardens in town have similar lights but it is always too crowded for my liking but then I could just be too lazy.
