Boatsman on the Yamuna River, India

Sunrise behind the Taj Mahal, in Agra, India, one January morning. As the fog lifted, a boatsman appeared out of the mist. He guided his craft silently across the calm waters of the Yamuna River. The fog still clung to the banks of the river, blending the waters into the mist and into the sky, in a seamless, cottony gray. No one else was around. The whole world felt smaller.
