Travel Photo: A Different View of the Taj

The Taj Mahal is a stunning work of art and architecture. It does not matter when you look at it or where you look at it from, you still end up looking at it with awe and wonder. On my recent winter holiday, I returned to Agra to show my friend the Taj Mahal. Even though the Taj Mahal is stunning to look at from its premises or from across the river at Mehtab Bagh, there are so many non descript places spread across Agra from where one can enjoy the surreal view of the Taj without having to pay any entry fees or worrying about other security measures.

Take this photograph as an example. This was taken from across the Yamuna and from inside a small public park where local kids played cricket or where local families spent their picnic. And the best part about this park was that it was totally clean making it a stunning location to catch a beautiful sunset shot of the Taj Mahal on non foggy days. Like this park, there are many places spread across Agra from where you can catch a glimpse of the majestic Taj Mahal. So, if you have a bit of time on hand and wish to take pictures of the Taj from different perspectives, then you should definitely visit such non-descript parks and locations across Agra.
