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."
