Still on the Atomium, this time a close up view with the lights on. The LED were installed as part of the renovations in 2006. The lights came on relatively late, around 10:30 pm. Though there were very few people around, you could hear a collective and appreciative "wow" when it was lit up.
The intricate detail of the sculptures and artwork on this facade can only be appreciated in person as this image neither portrays the workmanship nor the grandeur of this structure.

This was the highlight of the London Lumiere festival for me. The bright, changing colours on the facade made the sculptures and intricate design feel almost “alive”. After trying to get a picture with the crowds at the entrance, I crossed the road, stuck the camera in between steel rods of a road sign and …
