Energy by plutoplus1 Energy by plutoplus1
Took this at the festival of colors yesterday :) Amazingly, I got very few "colors" on me...I was standing on a hill looking down on the crowd, with the wind blowing the colorful dust away from me. I also wasn't wearing white, which probably showed I didn't want colorful stuff all over me ;)

**If you are one of the people in this photo, and would like an original full sized copy, please let me know**

EDIT: DD: Wow, my first DD -ever-!! I am beyond thrilled :) Thanks so much to capricordestin for suggesting it and Timothy-Sim for featuring it!

From 39 favorites before the DD to 482 and counting (only 12 hours later!), there is no way I can thank all of you in a timely manner, so please accept my thanks here!

Amazing! The colour, movement, it's like an intricately planned tapestry of personality. For some reason it reminds me of this alma-tadema painting from 1904: [link]

I think it's just the upraised arms. I don't know ^__^ but anyway, it's a genius shot.

I thought so, I used to live in Payson, and I've been to the Krishna temple several times, though I've never gone to the festival of colors.
