Last night I went to Waddesdon Manor again – this time with my camera which I had forgotten the last time (face palm, as my niece would say). My purpose in going was to photograph the light installation by world-renowned artist Bruce Munro.
Named Field of Light, the installation is made of 9,000 lights “planted” in the Manor grounds. During daylight hours they looks particularly uninspiring.
Once darkness falls however, they light up and take on an ethereal beauty.
Each globe cycles through subtle changes in colour. In one case moving gradually from golden yellow…
…to bright turquoise.
The lights cover a large area near the Aviary and appear to stretch for miles. To my mind, they look like fields of bright coloured tulips…
Or city lights seen from afar.
It is a really beautiful exhibition and sadly is only on for a few more days. It finishes on 2 January 2017.
Catch it if you can…and don’t forget to take your camera.
