Skywatch Friday - Fireworks over Tunga in Tirthahalli

Deepavali/Diwali is round the corner. We wish you all a very happy and prosperous Deepavali/Diwali. 

When we talk about Deepavali/Diwali or Festival of lights, it is the lovely fireworks that cross our mind. Colourful and bright, they lit up the night sky making it look lovely.

We happened to see this lovely picture. It is shot at dusk over River Tunga in Tirthahalli in the Malnad region of South Indian state of Karnataka. Tunga in winter is a gentle river and forms lovely sand banks on its course in and around Tirthahalli. The 80 year old bridge over the river is an architect's delight.

In the month of December, "Teppotsava" a week long festival of Lord Rameshwara bring scores of people to this small town. Fireworks on the banks of the river in the evening is part of the festivities and the whole area looks spectacular.
