Loy Krathong, sometimes spelt Loi Kratong, is a spectacular festival held every year on the full moon of the twelfth month in the Thai Lunar Calendar. It is celebrated throughout Thailand to honour Buddha. However, in northern Thailand it coincides with the Lanna festival of Yi Peng , also spelt Yee Peng by the locals. This was taken during the impromptu sky lantern release in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Yee Peng Festival happens on the second month full moon day of the Lanna calender. People celebrate by releasing lanterns into the sky. It happened yesterday and its real treat to be in the middle of that event. This is second time i was there and this time, i concentrated on catching the reflections from the pond.
