Five day challenge, Day 3 – Haiku

Day three of the five day challenge put to me by Scillagrace.  I’m in the mood for a bit of Haiku today…

This photograph was taken at dawn on the Ganges just off Varanasai, India.

Posted as part of the weekly photo challenge – this weeks theme ‘Yellow’

This photograph was taken during our trip to Northern India last year. It was about 4:30 in the morning on one of the ghats lining the banks of the Ganges.  We were waiting to board a little boat so that we could view the amazing sunrise from the river.  However, there was a very heavy mist which made everything soft and unfocused, it also had the effect of washing out all colour and making the small scene under the lights appear in this delicious yellow ochre glaze.
