Back from Rishikesh

Hi everyone...I missed you all during these 5 days! I would have loved to stay for some more time-- the weather was so good and everything was so beautiful...but I had to come back sooner than I had planned due to some obligations of work! Anyway, I took full advantage of my trip and tried to take some good shots as I had promised.
First of all, the banks of Ganga river....

The flower sellers ...

The sadhus soaking in morning sun...

The flowers for devotees....

  14. Photographs of India are always so colorful. The flower seller photos are great. I know I will never have the opportunity to travel there so seeing photos are the next best thing.
