Agra, India

Photograph by Martin Bauer, My Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel

Tourists flock to Agra to see the world-famous Taj Mahal, only to realize that the area is home to many other astonishing buildings, among them the 16th-century Red Fort, which once surrounded a Mogul imperial city.

Photo Tip: The optimal times for photography are usually late in the afternoon or early in the morning. Early morning light is a very clean, white light that provides crisp vibrant colors. Late afternoon or early evening brings a warmer, softer light.
