A visitor to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in a field of blooms.
Washing clothes in the waters of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala.
Generations of beautiful women celebrating Holi in vivid colours.
A certain winged lady at a vintage car show in Powerscourt.
A moment of Zen in front of the dancing waters outside Lincoln Center.
