Godavari: River of life

This picture shows the river Godavari (in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India) shot from a bridge that goes over it. The river feeds various southern states in India. Lakhs of lives are dependent on this water source and this photograph was shot while the sun was setting and everyone were retiring from their daily work routines. It was just interesting to see all the activity on the riverbank seize and it felt like everything stood still to witness this breathtaking sight.
