„Rising Sun and the fading Lamp - Varanasi, India“

from the gallery of Soumen Nath

Varanasi-once known as Banaras and Kashi, is a historical city in northern India. The city is sacred to Hindus and also one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. It's also among most popular pilgrimage of India.
I ventured out early in the morning to capture the blue-hour and later the activities of the birds.
The lamps are floated by the devotees during the evening as homage to the River Ganges. Somehow this one survived till the morning. I found a nice scenery with the birds making a interesting backdrop.
