The steps leading to the river next to Kodandarama Temple in Hampi are usually empty, except for occasional tourists and families of pilgrims arriving and leaving. But we got lucky when I was leading a photography tour last winter. We found a large group of pilgrims stationed at the location, adding a splash of colours to the landscape. During most of this tour, I had kept my camera silent, simply keeping an eye on new perspectives that I may not have seen in my many visits to Hampi. But in the ten minutes of arriving here, my memory card was full!
