Across the River

The classic view of the Taj Mahal is very well known - a building of such symmetry calls out for a certain angle in photography.  However, I had wanted to see it from a rather different viewpoint, and this was provided went to Agra Fort.  The fort itself is pretty impressive, but these remain my favourite images I took when I visited it.

Once again, the light is not clear due to a combination of dust and pollution - but I rather like the way the picture feels.



You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

PS: thanks for the positive comments from last week!

That is a complerely different view. Would I have recognized it? I'm not sure. It seems to have more minerets than I thought.

I think that perspective is better than even from across the reflecting pool.

Great shot

Hello Stewart!:) Your images have a dream-like quality. It's a beautiful building, and I have seen many photos of the Taj Mahal, usually taken from directly in front, but your photos are even more beautiful taken from a distance.

I won't be linking up my hand painted bird plates this week,:) and I haven't anything else to post, so,... see you in a couple of months, hopefully with a variety of birds from the south of Portugal. I hope this comment gets posted!
