A shot of the Taj Mahal at 5.30am on 16 July 2012. As a very popular tourist destination the only real hope of getting a clear view of the Taj Mahal is the going either at sunrise or sunset. We were among the first admitted but had to wait for the first groups of people to make it down to the mausoleum to get this shot.
One of the delights of arriving at sunrise is being able to see the light suitably changing on the white marble. The camera does not really capture this as it more about the movement. Black and white seemed to suit this shot best. You can see the higher resolution image by clicking on this one. Feel free to contact me if you need any other Taj Mahal photos.
