Every year I go to Blossoms of Light at the Denver Botanic Gardens. I prefer it to Wildlights at the Zoo. (For those readers in south Denver, there are also lights displays at Chatfield Reservoir and the Wildlife Experience. I haven’t been to those.) Here’s a close-up of that blue tree, which was difficult to photograph, since it was across a walkway from a pond. My favorite display was this fountain at the end of the Perennial Walk.I played around with the image a bit in Aperture to achieve this effect, which, I admit, is silly,but it reminded me of this picture I took at Carlsbad Caverns almost 3 years ago. The sign above it reads, “Favor de tocar esta formacion.” In other words, touch this one all you want, but don’t touch the real formations in the cave, because you’ll damage them.

    I went last week to the Blossoms of Light and LOVED IT! Haven’t been in a couple of years but I drive by almost every night and couldn’t resist those lights any longer.

    Beth — I had no idea how pretty it was in there! I will have to make sure I visit next year.

    I visited the lights at Hudson Gardens in Littleton. Also very cool. I was amazed at how delighted I was by the colors and the lights.

    Mary, I haven’t heard of that one. One of these days, after Todd and I move to Denver, it will be easier for us to get to some of these more southern destinations.
