Photographer's Note

The “Ganga Aarti” (river worship) ceremony is held at sunset every day at the Har-Ki-Pairi (footstep of God) in Haridwar where the deity Vishnu has left an imprint in the bed of the Ganges. A highlight of the ceremony is the torch-lit offerings set afloat to form a small armada of floating lights on the holy river. This picture shows one devotee praying before making his offering to the river.

On a technical note this picture was shot hand-held at the low-light limits (no flash): f/1.4. ISO1600. 1/100 second with “NeatImage” used to reduce noise.
