E-luminate Cambridge Festival

Cambridge was all lit up for the illuminating festival light on the 12th to 17th February 2016. I met up with an excellent Cambridge photo-walk crew to visit some of the installations around the city.

The theme this year is Connecting Lights creating a connection between the various parts of a complex city that is fast changing. The above photo is taken at the Senate House.

Some photographs I took from the installations can be seen below with lots more on Flickr and Instagram.
