the colours of Holi........

By sawsengee  
Holi festival in Rishikesh 10 March 2020, 9 days before the lockdown.......the mad splash of colours around India to celebrate the Holi Festival. This was my companion of the day & his visual result of colour smears from the enthusiastic public can imagine my condition and the smear of powder dust on my camera!! V1 is another view of another "casualty" of the event, all for the fun and joy of it.
THANK YOU very much everyone for the UAs, votes & pleasant comments......very much appreciated & I am sure my friend Harith will be overwhelmed when I tell him epz response to his image! GrinGrinGrin

Beautiful light as well as great colours Sawsengee, especially in the lead image. It looks like good fun as well as having religious significance.

The colours in the lead are wonderful: looking like makeup, rather than something random.

Amazing colours, it's a wonder he doesn't get it in his eyes, might take a few doses of make up remover to get that lot off !!
