    sparkled by the beauty of a place

    Is this "sparkled" a literary expression or a common one? It seems to mean "cause something to arise vividly", which I can't find in the dictionary.
    330-10
    ex)Taking photographs can relieve the desire for possession sparkled by the beauty of a place ; our anxiety over losing a precious scene can decline with every click of the shutter. Or else we can try to imprint ourselves physically on a place of beauty. perhaps hoping to render it more present in us by making ourselves more present in it...

    I think the person may have meant sparked.

    Or 'led by'. But instead they used both.
