Mehrangarh Fort......evening illumination

By sawsengee  
The Mehrangar Fort of Jodhpur Rajasthan.....built around 1459 has an imposing location 125 meters above the city of Jodhpur below.
The picture was captured handheld with elbow support only.
V1 shows an earlier shot of the Fort with reflection from the Gulab Sagar Talab with the sunset clouds streaking the sky like Chariots of Fire.
Here is a link to illustrate the Fort's significance:

And here is a link to the "curse" on the Fort by a saint:

Really lovely, ee. We can't travel at the moment, of course, so these beautiful images you're putting up are a very welcome substitute.
