Lightscape 2022 in Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens

There’s another amazing attraction in. Melbourne at the moment. Postponed from last year because of Covid, the Lightscape Event at the Royal Botanic Gardens is spectacular. It’s also very popular – so popular in fact that we had to park a long way away from the gardens in St Kilda Road and walk a considerable distance to get to the entrance of this flight show.

The Botanic Gardens Website tells us that “this is the first time that this experience has come to the gardens with iconic tree canopies being drenched in colour, with vibrant bursts of light tumbling from the undergrowth and running up trees like fizzing fireworks”. That’s pretty much how it as.

Some More of Lightscape

Here are a few more images from my Lightscape visit. I’m testing whether some different software will make images available to Apple users who currently see just a placeholder in the emails that this website publishes.
