Very moody, Vandana. The picture appears to be a bit rotated, but it's not disturbing. The misty mood works once more. India had a large booth on the holiday fair we visited in Antwerp ;o).

Hi Vandana,
This is what India is all about. Those well kept secrets....places that will amaze. This is such a wonderful capture...so well composed. The mist adds to the mood. Simply beautiful.

Like a sweet dream......
I want to be there...right now...ok !!!!!
thank for this jewel....for the eyes...
Bravo Vandana!!!
