Illuminasia 2016

The folks at the Calgary Zoo are committed to enriching the cultural lives of its citizens. Whether it’s celebrating the Holiday Season with Zoo Lights, or bringing back a crowd favourite, the Zoo has something special for everyone ! Building upon the success of last year’s Illuminasia event, its back – bigger and better !
Without further ado, take a peak at a few of the photos I captured of the event:

The exhibits were marvellous ! The optimal time to see them, is just as the sun is setting. We were fortunate enough to experience the full beauty of the Golden Hour, as it cast beautiful shadows across the Zoo. Then, as the sun set further, the exhibit glowed.

There were vendors selling food & hot chocolate, as well as a cultural dance exhibit.
