Migratory gulls fly over a boat on the holy waters of the Ganges river in the city of Varanasi in a foggy winter morning.

As my boat slowly waded through the mist floating over the frigid river water, the atmosphere was absolutely surreal. The tranquillity was intermittently broken by the cries of the gulls around me. I saw this boat slowly reveal itself in a distance. If it weren't for the reflection, it all seemed to be floating in a blurred continuum of water and mist.
