Ishidoro by Matthew-T Ishidoro by Matthew-T
One of the famed ishidoro (stone lanterns) located in the Portland Japanese Gardens, Portland, OR.

This was a special evening event for those with photography passes where the various lanterns throughout the gardens were lit and the gardens themselves were open until 9 pm, after sunset.

The place has a very different feel past dark. It's still as tranquil, but the atmosphere feels more magical with the lanterns lit and located throughout the forest and along the Strolling Pond.

I really like your artwork! Is there any way i could get semi-high res pictures of these images as a bundle, rather than grabbing them one at a time?

I really like the intensity of the light and colour the lantern is giving out, it looks wonderful and I can see from the surroundings how this place may feel magical after dark. very lovely shot.

I was going to ask why the lantern was lit until I read the comment, that's cool that they did that, it looks so pretty and peaceful.

You should attend their "Moonviewing" then :nod:

I won't be attending unfortunately. They don't allow tripods at the Moonviewings, so going with a camera at night would be somewhat pointless =p

I won't lie, I'm a little jealous of being able to be in the park until 9. It must be quite a unique experience. I was also completely unaware that they ever lit the lanterns. That's pretty cool. Haven't been since '05 (before they started charging extra for tripods)

Thanks mate. There's actually a "Moonviewing" coming up in September open to the general public (there's an entry fee of course). Tripods are not allowed, unfortunately, since it's not a photography specific event; however, it's still worth going to enjoy the beauty of it without the lens.
