Jaigarh Fort

Jaigarh Fort
Tower, Jaigarh Fort
Jaigarh Fort is located on the crest of a hill and houses among other things, the armory and canon foundry.
It overlooks the Amber Palace which used to serve as the official palace before the royal family founded Jaipur and moved there. It has several palaces, expansive courtyards and beautiful gardens. The garden attached to the Aram Nivas is the most splendid. Pictures to follow soon.

    I think i can spot tiny people in the tower at the end of the palace in the first pic. Awesome!
    And the composition of the second one is amazing.. totally loved the blue sky and not to forget the dash of red!

    beautiful composition.
    the first pic has darkened at the top left corner and the ground glare is negligible, a polarizer at work, definitely! :)

    #Nisha: Oh, the setting is simply fabulous. I was lost imagining the times of the Maharajas and how incredible it must have been for them.

    #K&C: Glad that you liked them.

    #Neelima: Yup, towers are accessible but the garden below isn't. Will post a picture of that soon. Appreciate the compliments.

    #Anoop: First time that I really learned how to use a polarizer :-) It makes a lot of difference with the glare but leaves the pictures quite dark.

    Yes, very beautiful. Helps to not have folks in the landscapes to actually let the eye pan out along nature's contours.

    #Anil: I think I did wait for sometime hoping for people to clear out but it was an endless stream. Will keep the tip in mind. Guess that's why they say that photographers need to be really patient!
