In this shot of the Lakshman Jhula, a bridge across the Ganges in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, the seemingly endless bridge almost promises an entry into a mystic land across the river where prayers are said and answered. I pulled this shot out from an album of 2011 to refresh my memory of this beautiful region that is now struggling with the death and devastation the recent flash floods have caused.

Location: Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India
