Photo of the Day: Candles on the Ganges River

Ganges-River-CandlesNearly two months in and Dream Trip 2009 is going strong, with more than 10,000 entries so far. For inspiration for your own entry, and a chance to win a $25,000 vacation to wherever you choose, read our take on a recent eye-catching submission:

India has always had plenty of visitors: explorers, invaders, pilgrims, seekers--and, more recently, photographers. The Subcontinent is so visually rich that many travelers here return home with memory cards packed with impressive, affecting photos. One of the more stirring images we've seen lately: Dream Trip entrant ucsbalum's "Ganges River Candle Ceremony."

"Such a beautiful shot of a beautiful, moving evening," writes uscbalum in the Dream Trip entry. "After watching the sunset over the Ganges River, we lit candles in leaves filled with flowers... and set them adrift in the river. I felt privileged to see this truly holy place."

Share your travel photos and memories in our 2009 Dream Trip Contest. You could be just a few clicks away from a $25,000 trip to anywhere you choose.
