I recently had the opportunity for a sunrise boat ride along the sacred River Ganges, in Varanasi. Myself and my boat guide, whose name I have sadly now forgotten, pushed off just as the sun was rising, near 6 am. The sky was an eerie flat gray and it was already in the 90s. A multitude of residents of one of the holiest cities in India had already lined the banks and peppered the ghats with their morning rituals of baths, blessings (pujas), and laundry.
The boat moved swiftly and I was not in the picture taking mood. Somehow, I think I managed to capture the scene. Enjoy!
