Early morning, Varanasi

Early morning at Varanasi, India, in fact shortly before sunrise, and a man walks along the bank of the River Ganges. Handheld in low light, even with the lens at its widest aperture, a high ISO setting was essential. Coming from a film photography background, it’s still amazing to me that an ISO value of 6400 is not only available but very useable.

Early morning, Varanasi, India.  Canon 5D Mark 2 with 24-105mm zoom lens at 97mm F4.0,  shutter speed 1/80 second at ISO 6400.
