One of the stream of the Holy River Ganges in Haridwar. The Ganges is the most respectable river for Hindus.
The pic is taken in Haridwar where the flow of the river divided into many streams. This is one of them. People are taking a holy dip in the river. The water flow is very fast at this place.
Hope you enjoy it.

always fascinated by images of this holy river. This image captures the mood and size of the crowds partaking of the waters. Composed and presented both compellingly and powerfully. Like it a lot!

Your picture gives perspective and depth with all these people which try to bathe in the river Ganges.
A little bit a pity of the white sky, but maybe a bad weather day
Sharpness and clarity make these picture wonderful.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well composition, TFS.

Good DL shot from Har ki Pauri. Like the way the bathers have shaped up the contours of the Holy river over here. I know it is very difficult, but next time try your best to avoid a wire in the frame. Nice shot nevertheless, thanks for sharing.

Great that you managed weather pretty well here with enough clarity, and the crowd participation liven the religious ritual really well as we can almost feel the atmosphere, perfectly judged and it works well to convey the absorbing drama. It's dynamic and a slice of religious awareness so well taken. The overhead cable, i find is a bit distracting nevertheless it's a
fine shot. Well done, TFS

The clock tower is a strong focal point and immediately identifies the place...Nice daily life shot from Haridwar taken from the foot bridge

Excellent photo, superb view down to the huge amount of people around the holly river. I was in Hardiwar two years ago, but that time have not seen so many people around the river Ganges.
p.s. During my traveling I crossed this holy river on three different places, here in Hardiwar, in Varanasi and in Bangladesh. Everytime bigge and bigger.

This is a well composed shot with the river leading the eye through the scene. The crowds of people add life and a sense of scale to the shot. The less than ideal weather did not give you a good sky but you managed the lighting nicely.

Very nice dominant point of view on this scene on the holy river
The big cable is disturbing a little
I have done a WS to remove it
