On Wednesday we caught the Skytrain out to Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam to see the Christmas light display.
We got there at 3:30, just as the sun was low in the sky. In some cases the sun shining through the lights made it look as if they were already turned on. This weird bee topiary in the garden section was not lit-up but I’m glad we got to see it before it got too dark. The sun setting over the beaver pond. Trolls, and if you peek inside the doorway there’s dynamite and treasure. Winter trees wrapped in lights. Xmas ‘flower’ lights made up of recycled plastic water bottles lined many of the paths.Lit-up swans basking in the pink waters reflecting the last light of the day. As it got darker the forest walkway became more magical. Clusters of yellow lights hang like fruit off the bare winter trees. The walkway.The green swirls.Lanterns. Flowers made with wire wastepaper baskets and lights in a tube. Snail in the garden. These coloured water plastic bottles formed an interactive display that had kids running around changing the bottles and making new patterns in the walls. A light tunnel.At this point it was too dark for my camera to function although the walk was at its most magical.One last photo, pink lotuses floating on the lake.More of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Celebrations.
