Prayer on the Jordan River

Edited photographer caption: Once a year on January 18, thousands of Orthodox Christians make pilgrimage to Qasr al-Yahud, the traditional baptism site of Jesus on the Jordan River, to celebrate the Epiphany. During that ceremony, I shot this priest while raising his hand and praying to God.
