What a sauce: A reveller lies smothered in tomato juice and pulp
A tourist happily swims in the mush of thousands of pulped tomatoes. He's seeing red and loving every minute of it.
For this is the annual battle in a Spanish Mediterranean town which has staged the food fight fiesta for more than 60 years.
Tens of thousands of revellers - some from as far as Japan and Australia - took to the streets of Bunol, near Valencia, to join in the fun.
They pelted each other with 120 tonnes of ripe tomatoes on hand in five loaded trucks.
This year, Brunol's town hall estimated about 40,000 people joined the hour-long fight known as Tomatina, which has its origins in a food fight between two boys in 1945.
Many wore goggles and old clothes as they were drenched in the sea of red pips and pulp. And when they finished the town set up portable showers and opened up fire hydrants so they could shower off the stains.
And once the battle was over, the streets and walls were hosed down, ready for next year's vegetable party.
