The days are stretching out, and the night is finally releasing its grip on the Northern Hemisphere. Before the light began to reclaim the skies, we took time out to see Amsterdam Light Festival before it finished for the season.
There were so many beautiful sculptures and exhibits to take in.
Myself and Himself were completely enthralled as we cruised up and down water ways which we had yet to travel. This is in front of the Maritime Museum (Scheepvaartmuseum).
I loved the light snowflakes on this hotel. It makes me speculate on how grandiose it must look on the inside!
Now if only we could get the weather to produce some real snowflakes! (Before you ask, it’s not going to get cold enough this year.)
These lights reminded me of fireworks.
Making the standard street lights in to an interactive exhibit using steam was an inspired idea.
This is the first canal we lived above, and that building (*points*) is where we lived. It was kind of odd seeing it from this perspective for the first time.
This piece is massive, and scans through colour changes too!
The piece is in the shape of the building that once used to be in this position.
It was built to represent how much can be lost with the passing of time and the modernisation of a city.
When combined with the gluhwein that was included in the ticket, it was definitely something we need to do again next year!
