A photo taken during the festival of Thingyan, or the Burmese Water festival, celebrating the Burmese New Year as well as the coming of the monsoon. Revelers spray one another with water during the four day event, which occurs in April. The arrival of the monsoon season is celebrated elsewhere in SE Asia as well. In Thailand the festival is known as Songkran.

Kia ora Ryno,
A great action picture which certainly captures the moment. The expression on the face of the man in the lower right says it all. Cheers, Neil Your title is appropriate too.
