Sunset Sky at Devgiri Fort

The formidable 14th century hill fort, the Devgiri Fort is at Daulatabad, 15 kms away from Aurangabad. On our way back after a visit to Ellora in the evening the fort was engulfed by sunset sky.



The view of fort in the mild orange sky was  mind blowing. I could not resist myself from clicking a few snaps by stopping the vehicle.

So happy to have found your website! I love India and I know that one of these days I will get to see this beautiful country for myself! Meanwhile I'll visit through your site. The color of the sky is rather haunting.
