Now that spring has arrived in New Delhi, streets and parks here are adorned with fully blossomed Palash trees; commonly known as flame of the forest or parrot tree.
This tree is native to India & blooms during spring. Traditionally, extract of these red-orange flowers have been used to prepare colored water for the celebration of festival of colors, Holi.
Although Holi is over these pretty flowers are still coloring the street of New Delhi. Enjoy this collection of images I have captured in last couple of days.
Holi, the popular Hindu spring festival of colors took place last week. The arrival of spring festival occurs every year in March, to be exact, on the full moon of the month of 'Phaguna' (According to the Hindu calendar).
Enjoy this vibrant collection of street portraits which was captured during the celebration of Holi festival in the streets of New Delhi, India.
Holi is around the corner & the excitement is building up. If you're in India you get to live it to the fullest there's no doubt about it but in recent years people all over the world has been celebrating the festival of colors with lots of passion & fun.
In the picture above lord Ganesha playing 'Holi' signifies strong religious sentiments attached to the festival for the Hindus.
I have always found many people talking about their favorite color during the festival, last year mine was sky blue & I guess hers was red.
The best part I found about this festival is, it gives you an opportunity to close gap between rich and poor, young & old.
This year spring is three weeks early in New Delhi & its beautiful. :)
Wildlife photography is not my forte, as a matter of fact its more of a hobby. When I get tired of capturing streets & people & everyday life I take walks in nature, on the way if I find something interesting or fascinating or funny I capture it. On this 'World Wildlife Day' I am sharing some of those shots with you all.
I truly believe nature has blessed us, humans, with so many special skills so that we can take care of our fellow living beings. A very happy World Wildlife Day to you all.
