Default Village Carnival

A float festival was going on at a nearby village Thirumullaivoyal, carrying the deity on a float around the temple tank. Local people had gathered. Some shots..

Raghu, You have some lovely images there in taken in the evening/ night. The first and second are my favorites but the reflection on the water of the last one is also good. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for posting, Raghu-

Excellent as usual, and under rather difficult shooting conditions as well. Well done.

Thank you Alun and Sarah. It was my pleasure sharing the photos here.
FZ35Pana - welcome to the forum. Yes, it is the same Thirumullaivoyal. I live in Ambattur. If you search all my photos in this forum, you can find many photos taken around this place, including earlier photos of Thirumullaivoyal temple. Do let me know when you are back in Chennai next, we can have a chat. BTW, we would like to know your name - FZ35Pana is too generic.

Raghu, Hi
My company has a large factory in Chennai. Unfortunately I have never been "down South",
but been a number of times to our other operations in New Delhi and Beroda, not to mention
having taken time out and done the "tourist" thing to Mumbai & Agra a number of times too
Unfortunately my FZ38 has not been with me to your wonderful country. I usually travel
with my much more compact (and pocketable) Sony W55!
Regards
