Entering Kumbalgarh Fort, an impressive fort constructed in the 15th century. The second most important fort after Chittorgarh. Surrounded by the the Aravali hills with nowadays a small village at its foot. As we turned the last bend of the road and approached the main gate the camel train turned the opposite corner in front of us. A lucky moment!

Wow, this looks majestic! Of course the entrance or main gate is like any other fort, but from the look of it, it does appear that it's still not that touristy! Excellent resolution & of course like the camel guy leading their three camels in.

A great shot! Well composed and exposed. The moment you captured this shot is fabulous - we see at all angles the camels! The texture on the stone is perfect and the view from the arch is well exposed.
Great job, Elaine.

Elaine: it's an entertaining scene - a bit asymmetrical for me - but it's great relative TE material. regards, c

I went to Kumbargath as well, great memories of the place... Great idea to include the animas and the man, good colors and sharpening. Great one.

Great use of a rather wide angle here. I love the shape of the walls on each side and the camels coming in.

A lucky moment indeed. The small range of colors in this picture is amazing. Even the camels go well with the hues of the walls. Perfect! I like the shadows of the camel train very much. Perfect exposure.
