A couple of months ago I posted some of my fav pics by Thomas Hawk during the Holi Festival of Colors. Since it’s now spring time again, I thought I’d share new inspiring photos of the event from several Indian photographers.  While everyone in the States is celebrating St. Patrick’s, India is having a color fest all their own, splashing colored holy water on thousands upon thousands.

For those of you who haven’t heard of Holi Day, it’s essentially the Hindu celebration of spring. To give you an idea, take a look at some of the photos below! I hope when I travel to India I get to witness such a grand cultural celebration. It would be an honor to be a part of it someday and take great photos such as these along the way while having so much fun! Scroll down to see some powerful pictures from this year’s event:
