'Seeking Silence' India
Category: Sense of Place
Photo and caption by danielle van der schans
India is a buzling country. As a western photographer it's hard to find a place where you are not bothered. I'm trying to find the 'silence' in my photography. This image i took early morning at the Ganges during the last day of the Maha Kumbh Mela. A special day called the 'Maha Shivratri', the big night of the Hindu god Shiva. Thousands of pilgrims come to this special day in Varanasi.
Location: Varanasi, India
