This picture was taken during a recent trip to Jaipur, from the terrace of the fort at Nahargarh, located at the edge of the Aravalli hills, overlooking the Pink City. The fort was built by Sawai Jai Singh II in the year 1734 and later developed in the year 1868. It  offers spectacular views of the city, especially at sunset and I was just lucky enough to capture a few shots, before dusk set in.

The silhouette of the fort against an orange and blue sky was very striking and there were many, like me, eager to set up their tripods to get the perfect sunset shot(s).

The sky looked magical for a few seconds as dusk settled in briefly before slipping away in no time. To me, it was as perfect as it could get!
