Sunset Over the Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal at sunset. As I was walking around the grounds a gardener asked me if I wanted a different perspective of the structure. When I said yes he took me to this opening in the shrubs to set up my tripod. This picture was the result of a stranger's kindness and knowledge of the setting.

One of the many interesting things about the Taj Mahal is that the type of marble used to construct the mausoleum actually appears to change color depending on the angle at which the rising and setting sun strikes the surface.
