Blue hour magic over Harmandir Sahib

By sawsengee  
The blue hour casts a magic spell over the Harmandir Sahib (Sikh Golden Temple) in Amritsar.......shown here are the eastern gateway on the right, the Golden Temple in the centre and on the left is the Akal Takht (which is the Throne of the Timeless One) where the Sikh's holy book the Granth Sahib is kept & conveyed daily to the Golden Temple for public prayers & display. Here are links to the religious significance of the Akal Takht & the Harmandir Sahib:

Beautiful shot ee. I see it was hand held . I took my tripod but they wouldn't let me use it. Apparently i needed special permission. This was a situation all over India. India is not tripod friendly !!!!
