As you might know, one of the famous Hindu festivals is Diwali, it’s called "festival of lights". This is one of famous Hindu temple located in Lilburn, Atlanta, Georgia - USA. During Diwali time the temple used to decorate with its own styles, lights and colors. There was schedule fireworks event used to start at 7PM. So we thought to reach there by 6:00 PM. But the traffic was so horrible and we managed to be there by 6:45 PM. I brought my tripod but saw lot of high profile photographers already occupied the vantage points with their Tripod for taking good snaps (Later came to know those guys came from some photography meet-up groups) So I managed to put my tripod more closer to temple and get some fireworks shot, those are not incredible but something is better than nothing. Anyway after fireworks over people left and I was waiting to get this advantage of this vantage point to capture the temple reflection into the water. It was around 11 O'clock night with chill winter wind passing through my necks and my friends buzzing me around to go home!
Thought to get the benefit of vantage point, though I know it could much better with fireworks. Definitely that is in my wish list to do sometime near future. And I think this is not a very bad picture though in my opinion!
