Photographer's Note

I had taken a car from the Hotel at 6 in the morning. The visibility in the fog was a mere 6 feet, and I was harboring aspirations to go to the other side of Yamuna & catch a glimpse of sunrise on the Taj Mahal from the other bank. Braving the white wall like fog, I did reach the destination, but with visibility barely improving, the hope of getting the vision of the famed Taj Mahal & the effect the first rays of the sun on it was rapidly fading into the thick blanket of fog.

With optimism in my heart, I approached the river bank to see a faint outline of the Taj on the other bank. Then slowly a little more....I was not the only one with a camera though, there were at least couple of other guys who I could see had stationed themselves on the sand banks armed with large tripods. The fog played truant, revealing the silhouetted domes & minarets of Taj & then in the next moment shrouding the scene again...I hung around for about half an hour taking pictures almost by the minute. Then the fog became dense again & I started my retreat. This was one of the moments when a silhouetted part of the Taj, and the mosque on the right which seemed to have won a battle against the fog...at least for that very moment.

My last post for some time, as tomorrow I move to Mumbai (Bombay) in my new work assignment. Will see you all in TE after I manage to settle down a bit. Till then take care.
