before the fire
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|In Assam, after the harvest, it's time to celebrate Biho. During Biho they build Maji from bamboo and rice straw, and at the end of this festival they burn the Maji like "The burning man" event in Arizona.|

An interesting photo of something that most of us would not have seen had it not been for your photo.
The backstory is interesting and the construction even more so.
The calf in the foreground is a mix of an attentiongrabber and a disturbance. Taking attention from the structure in the background but also adding an addition that makes the photo even more interesting.
Thanks for sharing.
J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Le point de vue très beau, au niveau du petit veau est superbe et donne de l'ampleur à la structure derrière qui va bientôt brûler.
The adorable cow is what pulled me into this photo. He's cute, and he seems curious about you. :-) It's interesting to see this structure that will be burned; it's very elaborate. The WS photo is also nice.
