This and earlier chapters in India has taken me to the hills of the north a few times, including Manali, Kasol, Shimla and Kasauli.  Rishikesh, although is just the beginning of the hills, came up as an opportunity recently to capture further travel images.

There was an indescribable intensity of spiritual energy in this place... There was of course the obvious visual forms such as Hindu temples, presence of many yoga and meditation teaching.. However, there was a very strong presence of varying energies from all sides of the spectrum which could only be felt. 

Speaking personally, I found myself feeling a strong presence of the darker energies, in a crazy mix with everything in between.
