Taj Mahal

Not quite the iconic view of my last posting but I used the tree in the left foreground to hide the scaffolding on one of the 4 minarets. One of the great assets of the Taj Mahal is that it is completely symmetrical (all 4 sides are identical) so you can get the same shot from many angles, although only 1 side has gardens in front of it.


Also as the sun rises the Taj starts to change colour from white through shades of yellow, pink and orange back to gleaming pure white as the sun reaches full strength
