Dragon boat races are traditionally held as part of the annual Duanwu Festival or Duen Ng observance in China. 19th-century European observers of the racing ritual, not understanding the significance of Duanwu, referred to the spectacle as a "dragon boat festival". This is the term that has become known in the West. (From Wikipedia)

Good morning Eleu,
I am always impressed with those rowers, how their action is perfectly in tandem.
Fine colorful view on the river and the lavish green surrounding, inspite the fact it is within a desert area.

Good morning Eleu,
Strange to see such luxuriant and lush greenery in the middle of a desert area but then I know the Hoover Dam is not far from here. Good sharpness and density. Excellent color and saturation and well composed withe the centerline well away from the horizon. Tfs!

Fine "drag-boat" race image for the uniform paddlers, and the tropical plant background which is unusual for the high desert.

Never expect this to be in Las Vegas Elue, what a great contrast there, an oasis in the desert! It's wonderful sports event timely shot full of vibrancy just leaps off the screen with all the array of stunning colours in such a brilliant weather condition. Indeed a scenic lake and the action packed, dynamic and the blue has extremely lifted this to high level, Wonderful capture, TFS

What a colorful spectacle! With all that greenery in the background, it is hard to believe this is in the desert!

Great light and vivid colours, it's really eye-catching ! The dragon number 1 boat is particularly interesting for the harmonious position of the rowers.
