The Taj Mahal in a veil

When I did visit the Taj Mahal, it decided to put  on the veil of the season’s cloud’s , it was in January. Therefore I didn’t get to capture the usual famous post card pictures. Which was fine with me, because I didn’t have to hit the crowd of the visitors of all from the world.

The evening before I visited the Taj Mahal, my driver took me to a view point afar and across the Taj Mahal and that’s where I had my breath taking moment , rather than visiting it. It was a spectacular sunset, having in mind the fumes of traffic and cloudiness.
