California's Field Of Light

California’s ‘Field Of Light’ Is An Instant Instagram Success

A new shimmering light display in California‘s Wine Country is the latest hotspot for Instagrammers all over the country. Forget about the actual Super Bloom fields – that’s so last spring. This vivid art piece is now all the rage.

“Field of Light” a colourful fibre-optics display created by British artist Bruce Munro, is giving people a whole new reason to visit Paso Robles.

Just four-hours drive from LA, it’s a must-see while in the area.

The beautiful display of flower-like lights covers the rolling hills of Sensorio and will be completely powered by solar. The mesmerising field is made up of 58,000 fibre-optic blooms that change colour in waves.

The glowing lights are made for Instagram…

As soon as the sun sets, the flowers light up in colours that reflect the pretty landscape around it. Field of Lights will be on display for two years, until May 2021.

This won’t be the first time British-based Munro has displayed this fantastic light installation; it was previously on display in Ulru, Western Australia. The California version is way bigger.

Here’s what you need to know before visiting Field of Light:

Tickets cost cost $27 to $30 for adults and $9 to $19 for children depending on the day. You can also splash out on VIP tickets which include access to a private terrace and picnic dinner—for $125.

There’s food and alcoholic drinks available to buy on site, so you can make a proper evening of it and there’s live acoustic music every night.

Just a note for Instagrammers wanting to get that perfect snap for the ‘gram: Sensorio does not allow tripods, lighting, flash or extensive photo/video equipment. Handheld cameras are fine.
