Taj Mahal Dawn

We arrived in Agra late on Thursday night, intending to see the Taj Mahal early the following morning before departing to Delhi to catch our flight home. It turns out that the Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays.


So in order to get the dawn photos we wanted, we had to trek over to the North bank opposite the palace in the hope that we could get a view of it. When we arrived all we could see was darkness and fog, but over the course of the next hour, it presented itself as the mist lifted with the dawn rays.
