The International Circle of Light Festival has opened in the Russian capital. Centred around Red Square, landmark buildings were lit by a spectacular light show.
Heavy rain did not dampen the spectacle. One spectator said, “I think the rain adds to the effect. After the birth of the world comes rain”.
The theme of this year’s festival is the “Energy of Life”. Spherical installations represent evolution from the big bang to present day.
This child described what it was like to watch, “I love this show, especially the fireworks. And I love the images on the ball, the earth and the sun.”
