Without a tripod, and not wanting to stop traffic by setting up such equipment even if I had it, most of my pictures turned into fuzzy blobs of bright colour, but the light up is beautiful and the garden well worth a visit at night, or during the day.
You start with a view of the lake with buildings and trees lit up on the opposite side
Then walk along lit and semi-lit paths through the forest
Some trees were lit up from below.
And the stream that used to flow through the garden was brought back through undulating blue lights.
But the best view was one ignored by most visitors - a Japanese maple at the height of its fall glory was a blaze of red and orange, tucked into a corner beside the outhouses by the entrance. Not a single extra-large lens and tripod toting ojisan in sight!
