Holi - The Festival of Colours

Holi - also known as the festival of colours - is a religious festival celebrating the beginning of the spring season, primarily observed in India and Nepal, it is also celebrated in many other countries and by photo editors around the globe.

As an editor I view hundreds if not thousands of images on a daily basis.  Sometimes you see great images and sometimes you don't.  There are certain events that just naturally lend themselves well to photography and Holi is one of them.

Blend the combination of vibrant colour, light, people and emotion and you have a winning formula for beautiful photos.
