Happy festival of lights

There are quite a few celebrations across the world but 2 that interest me the most are the Hindu festivals of lights (Diwali) in October, and the festival of colours (Holi) in March. Today, we are in the middle of Diwali, and while dogs hide under sofas, the generative artists among us are headed for the GPUs. Sorry, best I could do.

For those that don't know, Diwali is a 5-day celebration of cleansing and renewal to honour the battle between light and dark, or good and evil... there are a lot of historical divergences, but suffice it to say, that light, good and knowledge always win.

While I don't officially celebrate Diwali, it does remind me of a trip I made many years ago way up north into the arctic circle. I won't bore you with the details but the whole experience was totally amazing. Capping it all off was a slightly different festival of lights - the aurora borealis, more commonly called the Northern Lights. While mostly green we did get a good show of yellows, blues, an occasional purple and a rare red.

Here are a few images that popped out of the computer over the weekend. This one is for sale. If you like any others, please get in touch.
