Photographer's Note

The best hour to see the Taj Mahal from the main entrance is around the dusk, when it changes so many colours, depending of the position of the sun. But there's a problem: The thousands of tourists that come to visit a wonder of the world.

We always have an alternative. Wake up very early in the morning, before the sunrise and go to enjoy the marvellous view of the "back" of the Taj Mahal, from the opposite bank of Yemuna river. No tourists there and the same light effect caused by the dawn. If you are lucky you can even see a boy wandering with his camel. This particular one stood there for a few seconds looking with inmense curiosity a TV crew (last August I stayed 23 days in India helping in the shooting of a serie of documentaries for a Greek TV station).
