I'm off to India again in a couple of weeks and I've been critiquing a photo of the Taj from over the river Jamuna. This is an early morning shot. The plinth to the left is where many people take the classic view, but I liked this viewpoint.

Down south this year to Karanataka and Kerala, spices, coffee, hills and backwaters, ending up in Kochi/Cochin, so you'll have to put up with my Chinese fishing nets no doubtGrin

i exactly know from where it is taken.. agra is my wife's city and i visit the taj once every year.. every time i visit i find a new experience.. sometimes it overwhelms me to find together people of so many nationalities, origins, ethnicities and fills me with a sense that boundaries are being broken.. silence too is enjoyable here, but you are not likely to find it (but i see you got in very early and a bit of loneliness).. though i have never visited it on full moon nights, i have a feeling that they do allow tourists on full moon nights.. what a magical experience that would be.. i have to explore myself..
best of luck.. good shooting.. india is a wonderful place to take pictures.. cheers. Smile

Thank you so much Pamab, our only sadness now is that we waited so long to visit your wonderful country. Not only is there great beauty, there are wonderful people and overwhelming cities. This time we are spending most of our time in the countryside and we're looking forward to it so much.
