Picture of the Day - October 25


This a morning photo of the cremation ground Manikarnika ghat on the edge of the Ganges river in Varanasi.  As the waters slowly recede over the month of October, the cremation ground gains more space.  In the foreground is a large boat filled with wood that has been brought to the ground.  That wood will be stored near scales which are kept behind the building in the left side of the photo.
