This is the shot taken in the early hour of the day from the slopes below Meherangarh Fort in Jodhpur when one of the most beautiful part of the day occurs probably before many people wake up. The silhouetted Umaid Bhawan Palace can be seen on the far low horizon. But there is something special about the light and atmosphere that morning. What wonder nature creates in the sky is pretty visible, the blissful moments and I really enjoy the gradual changes in lighting that occur as the sun rises above and allowing nature to run it’s course. Part of the joy of photography is also enjoying the moment of capture and hopefully, this photograph will help inspire you.

mi piace la panoramica con le strisce di fuoco di questo tramonto e la moschea sullo sfondo.
Ottima la resa,

a fantastic sky with beautiful shades, I like the silhouettes of the Umaid Bhawan Palace perfectly set in the frame, wonderful sunrise with a special light...Only people who love photography get up early to conceiving these shots...
have a good day...

First Jodhpur is a fantastic city but here that's magical. Splendid colors and excellent framing with the small silhouette at the bottom

une photo solidement retravaillée en post processing et cela se voit à divers endroits. Il n'empêche que le ciel est de toute beauté, bien dessiné et foisonnant de couleurs variées.
Jolie palette de couleur allant des chaudes aux froides.

Beautiful, really beautiful. Extraordinary landscape. With sunset colors. Congratulated for excellent resolution and registration.

Splendid, marvellous colours which dominate the picture so strongly, making it look like a painting, that only after a short while I notice the silhouette of the palace. It is fascinating to discover the exotic shape of the cupola and towers near the bottom of the photo. You made an ingenious composition - and this was not the first time:-)

Lovely shot with a good light capture, I like these warm colors and the well seen composition with the silhouette of the monument, tfs.

Being up and around at daybreak is mostly very special, I wonder why I dont do it more often. A splendid sky and well composed image incorporating the silhouetted palace.

Wow wow wow !
Splendid minimalism !
Just a tiny Umaid Bawan, far at the horizon, almost lost in the blue of the early day light
Great sky to which you've given the main room in your compo
too bad that I do not get up as early as that !
Enjoy your WE

The texture in the sky is what makes this picture stand out. It's like a beautiful watercolor and the silhouette of the palace adds sort of fairy-tale feel to it. The colors are sublime. Have a great weekend,

Très jolie composition avec la silhouette du batiment a l'horizon, un grand espace laisser a ce ciel merveilleux du matin, un moment de contemplation qu'on ne cesse de regarder en silence

Simple but very artistic capture. The colors are amazing and the silhouette of the temple is quite picturesque. Well taken, have a lovely weekend.

I like your PP here!The sky is really impressive and the composition is very good with the silhouette of the Palace so small comparing to this amazing sky! Indian sunrises are usually magnificent!

I understand your idea about the sky.
Nice presentation, TFS.

josepmarin (58087) 2012-03-17 10:25
A magnificent image! The reddish colors on the sky notice us that the day is beginning, because of the first sun rays on the clouds.
The silhouette of the landscape and of the Palace in the horizon line create an elegant graphical contrast in the composition.
This one was a magic moment, and you were there, for to immortalize it by means of this beautiful photo.
siolaw (38292) 2012-03-17 22:19
A compo with two element responding to each other diagonally, the fort and the firy clouds. Simple but efficient!

nikkitta (17066) 2012-03-21 19:09
You are right, sometimes photographers enjoy waiting for an special moment to take a photo
This time you managed to obtain a very spectacular daybreak with the reflecting sun in the clouds and the silhouette of the Umaid Bhawan palace emerging at the still dark-blue BG
Congrats and TFS
jmdias (60014) 2012-04-23 16:19
these magic hues made me remember the paintings of turner. very nice the softess of the image with the small detail of the building ahead. beautiful compo, full of beauty and poetry.
ourania (39016) 2012-11-25 10:08
this is a beautiful picture with a wonderful mystical atmosphere. It's lovely to watch the first light of the day slowly spreading across the sky and assuming extraordinary hues. I love the capture of the darkness and tranquility of the ground moments before they are extinguished by the light and the awakening of nature and people. The palace is a great addition emerging above the mist. Superb work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
kato (11630) 2013-01-11 22:58
You're capturing well this lanscape by a good angle and fine tone, so it's impressive to see the sky with several color layers and the architectured standing on the hill in the distance. It expresses well the atmosphere of daybreak.

Hello dear friend
impressive shot taken in the early hour
of the day fantastic sky with beautiful
shadows superb capture in blue tones
delpeoples (56054) 2015-08-10 19:06
Ciao dear Abmdsudi
This is like a painting. Photo or painting, it's a work of art. The rich colours of the sunset, the moody blues of the landscape and the silhouette of the palace combine superbly for the finished product. What a wonderful POV you chose, flawless and fearless breaking of the Rule of Thirds and an unforgettable photo as your reward. Congratulations. I love it.
