A few images of my journey through India. We arrived during non-tourist season. We soon found out why it was non-tourist season…. In mid-summer the the temperatures can soar up to 50 degrees with up to 100 percent humidity. The locals know how to deal with that sort of heat – sleep!

Hot springs by nikkirixon1

Yamunotri Temple is nestle 3,300 metres high in the Himalayan Mountain range of Northern India. It is the start of the Yamuna (sister of Yama, the God of death) river. The pilgrims travel from all over India for days to reach Janki Chatti where they start the 7 kilometre hike moving up 1000 metres on the moutain. Pilgrims on foot are joined by wealthier travellers who make use of ponies and dandies to carry them up the mountain. When they reach the temple they bath in the natural hot springs which occurs there. They cook rice in the steaming hot water and offer it to the Gods.

A few portraits I shot during my travels through India. What an amazing journey it was… There is never a dull moment in India – it is a photographers’ haven, a place of chaos, colours and beliefs so alien from the world I know. Such a busy place, but everyone still has time for each other… We were often invited into family homes for food – many people there have so little, but are so open to sharing what they have….
