Sunrise over Varanasi

As the sun came up over the Ganga river ( River Ganges ) on the morning of December 18, 2017 as I was walking the ghats in Varanasi, the sky was covered by a flock of birds ( seagulls ) and nearly covered the rising sun.  I had a split second opening to take this photo.

Rising sun

Embraces all
Even the sun
On her riverbed
