The Ganges at Dawn


This scene was one of a series taken in Varanasi when we arose before dawn to record the ceremony of Aarti. If you are ever visiting this part of India be prepared for ‘in your face India’, and I can recommend the experience of the pre-dawn ceremony. It’s a highly spiritual event as the light gradually breaks over the Ganges.
