Reflections on a Taj Mahal dawn

The Taj Mahal , a wondrous monument of love, is one of the world's most photographed buildings. It is celebrated for its amazing symmetry incorporated in all aspects of its design. Early morning rain had accumulated on the rich red paving forming puddles between the mosque and the creamy white marble of the Taj Mahal. The freshly washed monument was reflected with perfect beauty in the puddles as it was gently illuminated in early morning sunlight. I tried to capture the calm serenity & beauty. I used the reflections in the puddles to interpret the beauty and symmetry in my own unique way.
