I applogize for these iPhone pics, but I wanted to share them. This a high end restaurant, outdoor patio. I just updated their lighting. I used Excelsior fixtures with Kichler drop in LEDs. The hanging lights over each table in photo 2 turned out awesome.

I love spring!!!

I wrapped up an LED upgrade today on an existing system that was about 10 years old or so, and couldn't help but snap a few pictures of this breath taking redbud tree in full bloom. Just one of my absolute favorite trees.

This was a system re-wire and re-tasking of the existing fixtures to new locations to better fit the more mature landscape.

Enjoy!!

I like how all your stuff has light casting, for lack of term. It really enhances the ambiance.

Turned out nice Tim , is that a 10 watt 60 deg LED on the red bud tree also in the 3rd picture retaining wall lights would have looked nice on the patio area but maybe not in the budget.

Nice job
Richie

Thanks guys,

Hey Richie, Like I said, this was just a system re-hab so the homeowner just wanted to get everything she had working with existing fixtures moved to new locations to make it look better. I spoke to her already about some upgrades which included 5 hardscape lights for extended parts of the wall that are not in the picture. I like to start small; make them happy with the initial changes and then offer some upgrades to enhance it further.

For the redbud, I used 2- 3watt, 60 degree lamps (200 lumens), cross-lit front to side

Close... but in my investigations and development of LED lamps it would say it is more like 230Lm. There are no exact parameters in the equivalency game of course as you are comparing Apples to Gorillas.

I always get a chuckle when I see some LED lamp manu's making all sorts of equivalency claims like "As bright as a 35W Halogen" only to find out their product produces 150Lm at 3800 - 4200K.

If you would like to gain a much better understanding of how LEDs work and what you need to be looking for when designing and specifying them, feel free to download and review my Understanding LEDs paper, posted for download here: http://www.divshare.com/download/25129541-082
