Photographer's Note

There are many pictures and descriptions of the ghats at Varanasi on TE. It was reading these that gave me the wish to visit this extraordinary city during our recent hols in India.

Despite all I'd read and despite all the other tourists around, it was an experience that's hard to describe. There was an other-worldly feel and a sense of the exotic and mustical.

Being on the river at dawn was a lot to do with it, as the rising sun across the mist-laden river gave a mysterious feel, especially when looking along the bank. Fantastic light for taking photographs.

This shot is taken at the northern extreme of the boat ride, just before turning round and brings back for me the feel of being there.

All I've done in PP is boost the contrast and reduce noise to overcome some excessive haziness, since this shot was taken at quite a distance through the mist.
