The colours of Holi..........

By sawsengee  
The festival of Holi celebrated once a year.......& 2 places in India to be during this festival of colours i.e. Pushkar & Vrindavan. Here are images of the festival at noon with thousands of revelers in Pushkar Varah Ghat splashing colour dye powder on one another, dancing in the street amidst gigantic loud speakers & with only one unity i.e. COLOURS!!! (irrespective of race, religion, ethnicity )
p.s. it is a great atmosphere for photography but not the health of the camera & lenses with the swirling clouds of dust particles in the air.
Here is a link to further explain the significance of Holi:

Certainly a very colourful event, and one of the few sets that just wouldn't work in mono!! 😁 A fine collection here, and my faves have to be the candid ones, rather than posed, but all are excellent 👍
