Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Richard Murgatroyd

The eerie early morning atmosphere on the Ganges as fishermen check their nets was accentuated by a prolonged smog in November 2012 which often reduced visibility to below 100m. The lack of sunlight seemed to enhance the other-worldly qualities of this most spiritual place.

Location: Varanasi, Uttar, Pradesh, India
