~ The Holi Dip ~
Just after a fraction of second of completing a holy dip. These Sadhus were came in our town after completing the Gangasagar fair, for the occation of a 'Kali puja'. They are now being prepared for the rituals. This dip is also a part of that. Captured this shot with high shutter speed (1/1250sec) to freeze the moment with those water flow...
~ Enjoy It ~

Like the way you froze this holy man as he was coming out of the water after a dip. The water running down his long beard is an attractive element of this photo. Good off the centre framing. Thanks for sharing a good photo.

Excellent snapshot in superb light. Well chosen exposure time. Is this from Varanasi. I've witnessed holy procedure (with more people in the Ganges water) there many years back.
Excellent photo, well done.

A well composed portrait of this sadhu at his devotions. Ideally exposed to capture the water droplets falling over his head. Very good light and colours.

Un moment très émouvant. L'homme est immergé dans ses prières. Il est parfaitement placé dans le cadre.J'aime beaucoup l'eau qui coule de sa barbe.

Nice shot of the holy moment. The man is very focused on the water and the moment in spite of what is happening around. You have captured well the water and its big role in this holy dip. I´ve been to Varanasi and this photo reminds me about what I saw and experienced. Nice work!
