Boat Ride, Varanasi

Photograph by Razz Razalli

"Morning is the time to really enjoy Varanasi," writes Razz Razalli, who entered this image in the 2015 Traveler Photo Contest. A boat ride on the river and migrating birds give a sense of calm, he added. Located in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, Varanasi is the Hindus' holiest city.
