India Photo Tour February 2013 - Home Safe

Hello Everyone, this is our final blog entry on our Incredible India Photo Tour. 

The group arrived home Sunday afternoon after a 2:30 a.m flight departure from Delhi, India.  After an overnight flight into Amsterdam, the group had a seven hour and 30 minute layover so we arranged a day tour of the canal district in Amsterdam.  Not only was it a great way to spend some of our lay over time, it was a great experience to see some of Amsterdam.

Our last photo shoot while in India was to visit the Taj Mahal at sunrise.  Even though it is not that common for it to rain in India we had rain on our sunrise morning.  It was not heavy and photographers accept the photo opportunities that are made availalbe to them.

I would like to thank all the photographers and guests that joined me on the tour, it was great to photograph and share the experience with you.

Enjoy the images from our last day of the tour.

Taj Mahal at first light ... as you enter through the main gates.


A classic view of the Taj.


Bill sneaking a shot ... nice shoe covers!!! You have to wear covers over your shoes to protect the marble.


Inside the Taj. Beautiful light.


Despite the overcast the sun offering a little colour.


So many interesting archways surround the Taj.


Framed by the trees ... this is one of my favourite photo points in the gardens.


Group photo .... it was great to travel with you all.


Here are a few more images from the tour ...

A bouncing goat moving along the temple wall.

This is the way to get around the 65 sq km of the festival.


More incredible faces ...
