The colourful canopies of market stalls at a centuries old fish festival resemble beach towels from above in this vibrant scene from Bogura, Bangladesh.<br />
<br />
The drone shots were captured by Azim Khan Ronnie,  34, a freelance photographer from Dhaka.<br />
<br />
Azim said, "this ancient fish fair, on the banks of the Ichhamati River, has been held for more than 400 years.  It is only held for one day, and people travel from all over the country to experience it."<br />
<br />
"One of the main attractions is the sheer variety of fish on offer.  It also serves as a meeting place for all religions, tribes and faiths.  The economic importance can't be underestimated either; the lower classes benefit greatly from the sales they make."<br />
