Jal Mahal Water Palace in Jaipur, India

Photograph by Ravikanth Kurma

Birds, beckoned by early morning locals who bring food, take flight across Man Sagar Lake and Jal Mahal, the "Water Palace." Traditional boats ferry visitors to the palace, which sits in the middle of the lake. This photo was submitted to the 2015 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.
