Each year the Edinburgh Mela takes place during the final weekend of the festival season. Mela means gathering in Sanskrit, and the events, stands, food and music at the Mela have a distinctly Asian character. As we were watching a performance of Scottish, Japanese and Asian music all blended together I spotted this explosion of colour just to the side of the stage. Must have been a great picture from the other side too!
