Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, India

This photo was taken during the 2007 Kumbh Mela in Allahabad. This was during the sadhus’ procession to the Sangam to bathe on Mauni Amavasya, the new moon for the saints. It was very early in the morning, and there was a thick fog that added an even greater sense of magic and mystery to this ritual.
