Boat Ride on the Ganges
Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by Annika Hammerschlag
I took this photo while on a boat ride on the Ganges river, happy to finally have a peaceful moment away from another insanely chaotic Indian city. I wanted to capture the vibrant colors of the boat against the calm Ganges, the bamboo oars and the texture of the wood, and the movement of the rower all against the backdrop of the banks of the city fading into the early morning mist.
Location: Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India
