Sunset over Bundi, Rajasthan

On the border between day and night
As the sun sank into the perpetual haze over the Aravalli hills, I picked my way down the darkening hillside from the old fort, through thorny scrub, over dry, dusty, rubble, past strangely silent troops of macaques that watched me like goblins as I passed.

Wow. Not much more to say than that, really.

Such a sense of ancient habitation.

Thanks Anne-Marie — and that was pretty much my response at the time.

Zhoen, the fort itself was built in the 14th century, but who knows what history preceded it?
