A Touch of Colour

Posted by

Today and tomorrow Indians celebrate Holi - the festival of colours. People throw colours on each other to celebrate the triumph of good over evil. To mark the occasion I decided to put up this cardinal photo among my largely colourless snow set. I took this photo in my backyard after the latest snowstorm of 25th-26th February.

PENTAX K-7 1/125 second F/5.6 ISO 125 450 mm (35mm equiv.)

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
