Happy Dragon Boat Festival - 端 午节 快 乐

Tuesday this week is the Lunar Dragon Boat Festival for the Chinese all over the world.

 

This is the day in memory of the patriotic poet 屈原 ( Ji Yeun ) whom drown himself to show his love & dis-approval of then the tyranny Emperor of the Sung Dynasty.

 

During this day Chinese people would have then Dragon boat race on the river or sea & eat the dumpling.

 

Is an occasion for the family & friends to get together.

 

The story brief in wiki is here:

This shot is taken under natural Sunset lights.

 

One hand of mine is on the dumpling, the right hand is on my Canon 20D, this is only one shot I have taken.

 

I feel that it is a great shot!!
