A while back I visited Delhi with my husband. He had been before but it was my first time, and it did not disappoint.The clear blue skies, the cool winter sunshine, a real photographer's dream! Delhi is a mix of old and new, hence even the name change to New Delhi. But old Delhi is where it's at! The beautiful monuments dating back to the Mughal Empire, some of them are now declared UNESCO world heritage sites.


We saw the Qutub Minar, it is the tallest tower (73 metres) in India originally an ancient Islamic Monument, inscribed with Arabic inscriptions. Then we visited the Jama Masjid, which is the largest mosque in India, commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan (whom you might know also commissioned the Taj Mahal).

If you visit the Qutub Minar in Delhi, don't forget to capture these beautiful sights. These birds were flying in every direction possible, and against the golden sunset it was just pure magic. All I had to do was turn in any random direction and take a shot, and these birds did all the work for me.

More shots of the Minar, and columns of the Masjid, with India Gate on top right hand corner.

Ah the Lotus Temple, Bahá'í House of Worship, this must the most peaceful place in Delhi. So serene and so stunning. Once you step inside, it is as if you have escaped all the troubles of the world. You are not to make any sound once inside, just sit and medidate.
