18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

This photograph of a boatman resting was captured on a foggy morning during my visit to the Vishram Ghat at the bank of the Yamuna River in the sacred city of Mathura (the birthplace of Lord Krishna), India. The pilgrims come to the Yamuna to wash away sins in the sacred waters. The boatmen take tourists for guided boat rides on the river.
