The Holi celebration by the villagers of varsana village in Uttar Pradesh, India is literally a riot of colour. The inhabitants of Varsana village shower hundreds of buckets of liquid colours to drench the visiting members of the neighbouring village, followed by huge sacks of powdered colour to stick to their wet bodies. While battling my camera through the colour filled air I spotted this young villager with an expression of anticipation and surrender on his face as he anxiously awaited the next colour blast.
Location: Varsana village, Vrindavana,Uttar Pradesh,India.
