Pune Drum beaters in Pink in a state of haze on the day God Ganesha is immersed in the waters

Pune Drum beaters in Pink in a state of haze on the day God Ganesha is immersed in the waters

For Mahrashtra, a large state in India, this is perhaps the biggest festival that is celebrated by the resident local population. You have seen drum beaters arrayed in white and in yellow but to see them in shocking strawberry pink is a visual delight specially if they are doing their drum beating and swaying in low light where perforce the camera can not record the event in sharp clarity and frozen focus.

This is a slow shutter capture to showcase the pink drum beaters who were the vanguard for the deity of the God Ganesha being taken out for immersion in the nearby lake/river.

Perchance you would like to see it in large size.. you can see it here View On Black View On Black
