Morning is the best time to photograph Varanasi. The sun rises above the river, casting a golden glow across the Ghats, the steps that lead down to the river. It’s a scene of contrasts – garbage and dirt intermingled with bathers and clean laundry; hazy skies with colorful fabrics and painted buildings, camera happy tourists with the purity of religious ceremonies. It’s a place that makes you feel. What you feel depends on the individual.
