Eye-Popping Colors Captured at Utah’s Holi

Once a year, the Holi Festival of Colors, celebrating the arrival of a new season, takes place around the world. Crowds of people playfully pelt each other with vibrant paints, adding a wildly colorful hue to the environment. San Francisco-based photographer Thomas Hawk caught some amazing photographs of this year's celebration at Spanish Fork, Utah.

The series of images depict all of the fun and madness at the 2012 festival where hordes of people took part it in the jovial community activity. Adults and children alike joined in on the good time, resulting in a welcoming multicolored mess. Hawk's shots of these people with wide, open-mouth smiles are infectious and you can't help but smile along with them.
