When I was in India for five days in December, I practically had my Pentax welded to my eye for the entire trip, except when I was asleep. The colours and vibrant scenes of the country really do produce a photo-op at every corner - and I mean that literally.
This was taken en route from Dehra Dun to New Delhi, a few hours before I flew home to Melbourne. I took this through the open window of a moving four-wheel-drive (SUV, to most of you).
There is something quintessentially symmetrical about this early-morning scene. The light was mellow, the colours were intriguing, the buffalo is at rest and completely relaxed in the courtyard, and even those two wonderful symbols of rural India - the tractor and the cycle - are neatly parked beside each other.
