If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise … no, not teddy bears but illuminations at The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
We went to see the illuminations in the hours of darkness and how different the gardens and trees looked from a daytime visit.
Parts of the walk were quite creepy as there were sounds complimenting the illuminations.
The old walls and buildings were transformed.
I spotted this figure from the past still attending the plants. Was he real or a figure of imagination?
The illuminations were created by an international renowned light artist Ulf Pederson.
Ulf's description as to what he has created at the Lost Gardens of Heligan is to "have transformed the act of looking into a physical experience - where audiences frequently find themselves immersed in a sensational play of light and colour as the space metamorphoses into something unique and magical".
I enjoyed the visit, the lights and displays as a whole.
I most liked the transformations of the trees and bushes as they seemed to take on a whole new persona.
All in all it was a lovely evening, especially as the frequent rain we have been having in Cornwall, stayed away.
Even a few feathers floated across the pathways.
And to finish with, something black and white - as we made our way back to our car.
I have made several posts, with photos, about the Lost Gardens of Heligan, here are a few:
