The photo shows view of famous from Amer Fort (or also called “Amber Fort”) from Maota Lake. Amer Fort is located near Amer town just 11 km from Jaipur in beautiful Rajasthan state of India.
Amer Fort is set on a hill top overlooking Maota Lake. It was the original home of Rajput royalty until Jaipur city was constructed, and contains a number of breathtaking palaces, halls, gardens, and temples.
The fort entrance is reached by walking up the hill, going in a jeep, or taking a lurching elephant ride. The evening sound and light show, which brings alive the Fort's history, is impressive.
The Amer Fort was built by ‘Raja Shri Maan Singh JI Saheb’ (Maan Singh I) in 16th century. Man Singh, one of the first war chiefs or the trusted general of the Emperor Akbar.
Fort is known for its Indian Artistic Style, blending Hindu and Rajputs elements, it has the marvelous decoration influenced by both, the Hindu and Muslim manner of ornamentation.
Don’t miss it when are you in India.

I didn't miss it when I was in India. Unfortunately, I will also remember it as the place where my camera broke down :(
This is an impressive view one has from the other side of the water. The enormous walls are awesome.
I really like that sand colour of the buildings and the walls, nice in contrast with the colour of the water and the sky.
Best regards, Paul

Un autre endroit dont je fais la connaissance pour la première fois grâce à TE. Le point de vue comme si tu étais sur un bateau est vraiment parfait pour mettre en évidence cette très belle fortification qui brille au soleil.

The amber fort on the jade river, the colors are again exquisite here. What makes the water this color, the plantlife? Its a beautiful effect whatever it is, and the color of the fort sets it off even more strongly.
A beautiful scene and such an impressive building too.
Thanks as always

I just saw Abmdsudi's most recent posting offering a mysterious view from the Amer Fort. Your picture reminds us what a magnificent building this is, I like how it extends, marvellous and imposing, across your frame. You captured superb details and textures, lovely light and vivid colours allow us to enjoy this view even more. A delightful presentation, a very interesting study of this place. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

A fantastic view-point from across the lake on the big and wide fort. It is huge and not possible to show a whole edifice on one picture and yet maintaine a close range clear details.
Cheers for that achieved, ama zing monuemt.

wow, what an impressive fortress with so many layers that it makes its own composition in the picture. The green water before the fortress adds some extra color to the image and gives nice point of reference. beautiful light and masterly handled. I enjoy all the details of this intriguing architecture.
Enjoy your Sunday!

This picture certainly helps put into perspective your previous, I like how you've presented these two. This certainly looks to be well fortified from the river bank to the top, and sure makes for an impressive and domineering structure. Another solid layered effect of natural colors. The long, diagonal shadows are what initially caught my eye, giving a strong sense of the suns placement over this setting. Bright, sharply focused and detailed once again..I can even make out the subtle ripples along the waters surface. Speaking of which, that's an interesting shade of green...but it works well for this color pallet, very "earthy." Have a great week ahead. All the best.

You're capturing well this architecture by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see Amber Fort which is standing on the hill along the calm lake. It looks like an elegant architecture with long line and beautiful strucre. it's always tasteful for seeing a good architecture.
subhendu_bagchi (25316) 2014-03-03 2:09
another very good shot here. Like the view of this fort with such great clarity and depth. Sharp image quality with fine colours. I like the layers but wish a bit more sky on top. Excellent shot. Tfs.

Nice photo of Amber Fort perched on the top of the hill overlooking the lake. Like the contrast between the sand coloured fort, the green lake and the little strip of sky on the top. The fort is really imposing and a fine depiction of Rajasthani architecture. Fine sharp and clear image with nice colours and optimum clarity. Thanks for sharing.

You're showing us a great architecture in India. I've never seen river in this color. I like the gentle sunlight on the fort. This picture was very well taken. Thanks for sharing.

abmdsudi (40174) 2014-03-04 2:24
The beautiful light adds such a sense of warmth and a fine composition. The shimmering water is a strong element making a good link to the imposing structures
and visually balances the wider view. Contrast to bit od deep blue sky is indeed superb. Great capture, Tfs

This wonderful composition, which shows the impressive size and beauty of this strong image can appreciate very well the palace area, with its domes and turrets, ideal construction descends from the top of the hill to the edge of lake.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.

The invaders will have one hell of a time trying to capture this fort, it look formidable. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

The distance between the river and the fort is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the fort. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.
