Artist's Description

Taken with a Canon 50D, Sigma 17-70 lens at 17mm, F8, shutter speed 1/50 second ISO100 tweaked in Photoshop

Whilst in India we visited the red fort in Agra, it is an amazing location with wonderfully carved and coloured stones. This is a view of one of the many amazing rooms in the fort, the person in the back is cleaning the wonderful floor.

Agra Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site located in Agra, India. The fort is also known as Lal Qila, Fort Rouge and Red Fort of Agra. It is about 2.5 km northwest of its much more famous sister monument, the Taj Mahal. The fort can be more accurately described as a walled palatial city.

This was originally a brick fort and the Sikarwar Rajputs held it. It was mentioned for the first time in 1080 AD when a Ghaznavide force captured it. Sikandar Lodi (1487-1517) was the first Sultan of Delhi who shifted to Agra and lived in the fort. He governed the country from here and Agra assumed the importance of the 2nd capital. (wikipedia)
