Probably the same as anything anyone else has photographed while visiting the Taj Mahal in India but I was thrilled to have been there recently and felt compelled to share with my RB friends!

It’s the quality of the air that the Taj sits within that I think you captured perfectly. Great depth in this one
Thank you my friend! (you lonely commentator…..or would I be the lonely photographer?….either way, my deepest gratitude for your visit!)

Thanks so much Kathy!
Wow, what it must have been like to be there. Fantastic shot!
Hi Tony! Thanks for the visit! It was really cool to be there BUT (come closer because I’m going to whisper this to you…..I believe my anticipation of viewing it outweighed the experience of actually seeing it. I visited other historical/cultural sites in India that, for me, completely blew me away!) I will always remember it though and I’m really glad that I took the time to go!
I love the way you captured the Taj, it looks like it’s distanced and yet it fills the image and as you look at it, it’s as if you draw it closer to you. I hope that makes sense.
Hi machka! I’m so sorry for this late reply. I really appreciate your visit and your lovely comment! ( and I totally get what you meant!) LOL

Lovely image Lisa, well done.
A huge thank you for this feature David! So very much appreciated!
Beautiful photo, must have been a wonderful experience!
Thanks so much Damienne! The whole visit to India in itself was wonderful! I hope to go again one day!
It is hard to get a “new” view of the Taj, so sometimes you just have to take the “classic”! Amazing place and you have done well. I’ll never forget my first visit here some 12 years ago! India is amazing and this monument to love epitomises the country. (Love the clear (ish) air you got). Well done!
Thanks so much for your visit and your lovely comment! Yes….quite the statement of love, isn’t it? I adored my trip to India…was there with my daughter with a Canadian organization called Free the Children building a school in Northern Rajasthan. Absolutely amazing experience! Cheers!
That’s fantastic Lisa! Love the perfect symmetry and perspective on this.
Thanks so much Andrew! I was thrilled to be there!
congratulations on your well-deserved top ten placement!
Hi Gary! This is my MUCH delayed reply to your posting that I placed in the top 10 of one of your group’s challenges. I’m thrilled to have done so and I sincerely thank you for the great news!! I was traveling this summer and decided to take a break from my computer so it meant a short hiatus from Redbubble but I’m back! Hope you had a great summer!
I’ve already told you how much I like this shot, but just wanted to say congrats on the challenge – well deserved!
Hi Damienne! So sorry for my extremely late reply to your wonderful comment! I truly appreciate your support! I was traveling for most of the summer and decided to take a hiatus from my computer and just stay in the moment while I was on the road. But I’m back home again and look forward to catching up with everyone on RB! Hope you had a great summer!
