Taj Mahal sunrise, 12-hour round-trip journey; Beauty unsurpassed.

October 13th, 2013, 1pm

It was 31°C with scattered clouds. The breeze was light.

This morning at 2am, I left Le Meridien Delhi with a driver, guide, and security guard (just to be on the safe side, according to the hotel) to travel 3 hours to Agra for a chance to capture the Taj Mahal at sunrise.

After spending another 3 hours at various points across the river from the Taj hunting for good angles, we turned around and headed right back. Kudos to my support team for making an insane round-trip journey to fulfil my photographic wishes, and for taking such good care of me along the way.

Ser Chim, Divine, Nina, Cassie and 22 others said thanks.
