Neemrana Stepwell and Six Parrots, Early Morning, Rajasthan
A photo of Neemrana stepwell, golden light in the early morning, RajasthanWe've made four visits to Neemrana. It's 9 storeys deep and one of the most spectacular and atmospheric stepwells - and one of our favourites.
Neemrana is about 2 hours' drive from Delhi if you're on the roads before the traffic. On this occasion we set off early morning and waited for the sun to do its magic. The light was flat when we arrived but as the sun rose dozens of parrots emerged from their nests in the cracks in the masonry and warmed themselves in the sun.
For half an hour the light was perfect, then the sun rose higher and the shadows became too strong.
