A quiet morning at Dashashwamedh Ghat, the main ghat in Varanasi, India, on the banks of the Ganges River, afforded Your Shot member Raja Subramaniyan an image that could project the feel of the moment: a lone visitor “taking the holy bath.” The ghats, especially this one, are often full of pilgrims and tourists alike, but of this photo the photographer writes, “I loved the atmosphere of the Dashashwamedh Ghat on that day—beautiful sunrise with warm light, the mist effect, the arrangement of boats.”
Subramaniyan’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.

Ships launches are sometimes wild affairs, and depending on the method used, making a big splash can be part of the drill. The Freedom Class of Littoral Combat Ships do just that, being slid off the pier where they were built sideways. On Jan. 30, the soon-to-be USS Sioux City was the sixth LCS to take this grand plunge.
