Embracing a Golden Heaven

Embracing a Golden Heaven

“Two golden hours somewhere between sunrise and sunset.
Both are set with 60 diamond minutes.
No reward is offered.
They are gone forever.”
This is a quote by Horace Mann (1796–1859), an American education reformer and brother-in-law to author Nathaniel Hawthorne.

This picture was shot along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras) early in the morning, at sunrise.
This kid was enjoying jumping in the holy waters with two of his friends.
He was jumping in the reflections of the sun like a bird of fire, forgetting the fresh water of winter.
It was reminding me a few paintings by David Hockney.
