Row Up

Photograph by Maqsood Bhat, National Geographic Your Shot

"On the first day of snowfall in the Kashmir valley this year, I decided to survey life on the famous Dal Lake in Srinagar early in the morning," says Your Shot contributor Maqsood Bhat. "While rowing my boat in the backwaters of the lake, I suddenly saw a little shop toward which a man was rowing his boat for some purchases. It was the only shop around, and it seemed to me that everyone was dependent on that little market for their supplies."

The shop in the back waters of Dal lake seen by the photographer seems to serve the same purpose as an oasis in the desert although the lake is not a desert of sand dunes.

The sense of stillness as well as the sense of subtle movement of the falling snow and the rippling water is remarkable.
