The island of Bali not only boasts incredible beaches, amazing temples,beautiful rice terraces and exotic food but it also has an incredible variety of colourful celebrations. From July to October "Mekepung" or bull races are held in Bali. On my way to one of the many temples I was able to photograph a local race in which two bulls are harnessed to a chariot guided by a jockey.These races appeal mainly to Balinese families and are an off-the-beaten track attraction for tourists as well.

I got so caught up in the moment that I didn't realise how close they were getting.
