In one of my most favouritest travel photos ever these two boatmen prepare offerings of flowers, candles and woven baskets.
It’s early evening on the Ganges in Varanasi, India. The offerings are being prepared so that they can be lowered into the river, creating a floating path of light.
Each offering represents a wish or good karma for a family member, friend or yourself.
I’ve taken boat trips onto the Ganges several times throughout my travels and it’s something I never get tired of.
