Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouettes of the Taj Mahal

At six the gates opened to the Taj Mahal and a crowd raced to the east side where the Taj was set aglow by the rising sun.

We were alone as we headed off to the west side where the Taj was submerged in shadows, where we captured these early morning silhouettes of its magnificent architecture backdropped by the sun rising through the mist.

  2. Awesome shots. Like the others, I love the last one… the first one is fabulous too! I love the silhouette of the minarette and the light reflections on the floor.
