We had bad light conditions whilst in Varanasi; I don’t think we had a sunny day the whole time I was there— a photographer’s nightmare. I’ve done my best to show the true colors of this magnificent place, but I feel my photo efforts come to no avail compared to the vivid colors, smells and tastes found here. Next time I’m in Varanasi, I’ll be sure to pray to the weather Gods so that when the golden hour (before sunset) arrives, there will be sun enough to make this photographer’s dream come true. Until then, enjoy.
