A festival of lights

Every year, the Herengracht and the area near the Artis Zoo are lit up with light installations from various artists around the world. It is a beautiful sight to see the reflections of the installations in the water. Starting only a few years ago, the festival has quickly become established itself as something that everyone in the city, and far beyond it, awaits as the end of the year draws closer. You can do a walking tour or take one of the canal boats along the route, both are recommended.

Below are a few shots I took over the last few days.
