  2. Bach:

    Thanks – I could have gotten better resolution with my camera, but I intentionally keep the resolution just high enough for me to be able to print 8×10 photos (if I want to). The resolution I used here is a couple of steps lower than the maximum. I use the built-in ‘stitch’ functionality (this photo has 3-5 photos – right now, I don’t recall how many – stitched together) that Sundar uses to get his excellent nature photos.

    Re: Agra, well, the last time I visited was a few decades ago 😉 but the taxi driver said that it has improved and continues to do so. The area I photographed is behind the Taj, so it probably does not get as much attention as the front does. One thing I have failed to understand is how, if land is left untouched, it tends to stay brown/muddy without much grass in India but if they do that in the USA, they will have wild grass growing uninhabited. Is that soil fertility, or rains, or population? I have not been able to figure that out. Wonder if others have observed this …?
