A Shikara stuck amidst the weeds on Dal Lake, Srinagar

Dal Lake in Srinagar is dotted with Shikaras of all shapes in sizes. Over the years many get abandoned at various points on the late. While riding though Srinagar, on the ride to Leh, I stayed at a hotel near to the lake. Early morning, while others slept, I went down to the lake to explore the surrounding.
Early morning as the sun starts coming up, the surface of the lake lights up reflecting the hues of the sunrise. In one remote corner of the lake was this Shikara, all abandoned amidst the weeds.
