Featured Photo – The Blue City Jodhpur

Featuring Jodhpur, the 2nd largest city in the state of Rajasthan India, which has an estimated population of 1.32 million in year 2016.  It is located near the geographic centre of Rajasthan state and near to Jaisalmer.  Most people who visit Jaisalmer will make a stop at Jodhpur, which allows them to further their journey directly to Jaipur or make a detour to Udaipur in the further south.

The city is also commonly known as Blue City due to the blue-painted houses around Mehrangarh Fort, the location where this photo was taken just before sunset.

Coincidentally, the equipment used to capture this image are similar to the previous featured photo Hawa Mahal – a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens mounted on Fuji X-T10.  It was a little rush in the process as the fort closed at 6pm and the security was trying to get people out of the fort.  I thought it will be nice if we can stay a little longer and take the night scenery of the city from this point.
