PHOTO OF THE MONTH

Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - From The Road -

Away from the crowds, Taj Ma­hal, India

An­drew Mur­ray “This photo was taken on a re­cent eight-week ad­ven­ture through Nepal and India. We were keen to avoid the coachloads of tourists, so two friends and I left our hos­tel at 4.20am and ar­rived at the en­trance to the mag­nif­i­cent Taj Ma­hal at 4.40am. We were sec­ond in the queue and our ex­cite­ment went up a level.

Upon en­ter­ing the com­plex, ev­ery­body was rush­ing to get in and the crowds were gath­er­ing near the front. By chance, we went around its far side in­stead and we had the place to our­selves. It was a mag­i­cal mo­ment and meant we were able to get this shot.”
