The Dreamy Jaipur Winter Sunrise

After a long hiatus, I’m posting pictures of Jaipur sunrise.



Until the start of this year, I have posted pictures of sunrises or sunsets almost every week. Here I’m again with the sunrise pictures near the most epic place for the sunrise in Jaipur, Nahargarh Fort.

I mentioned in one of my posts that the sunrise point at Nahargarh Fort is best avoided for a variety of reasons. I found a better option to witness a sunrise near Nahargarh Fort.

I captured this picture seated from a lovely spot devoid of the crowd with a smartphone a few minutes after the sunrise. The colors are typical of smartphone pictures. I feel the pictures clicked by smartphones are better than a DSLR in many situations. This is because smartphones do a better job of evaluative metering. To me, this picture looks dreamy because of the blue and pink tint. Here is another dreamy picture that I posted in A Glimpse Of A Soft Winter Sun Check it out!

      1. Hello my friend. I have traveled to India twice, for a total of 5 weeks. First in the south, traveling the bottom triangle from Bangalore to Kanyakumari to Mahbalipurham and back. Second trip was Delhi, Agra, Amritsar, Wagah Border. I long for India and hope to be back in the next year or two.

  1. Beautiful! It’s really not the right word to do full justice to a sunset, but that’s the word that came to my mind on seeing that picture. 🙂 I tend to forget all my adjectives when I behold a sun on the horizon.

    1. It’s not that foggy and certainly not freezing, yet! In any case, Jaipur doesn’t experience a very cold weather. If at all, it lasts just for a week, max! we have a mild winter season which makes it a popular place for travelers. 🙂


    1. No, it wasn’t. Jaipur is yet to witness the cold spell. So from the perspective where you are based, the weather is “pleasant” but from a local’s perspective, it’s not that cold! 🙂

    1. That’s exactly my point, Mike. I always rely on my phone for pictures before the sunrise. A DSLR will surely need a tripod and long exposure to get a good shot. When you are on hike, tripod is impractical and impossible. Smartphone does the job reasonably well. I’m sure you have something similar to share, Mike!

    1. Thanks, Arti. I think the sunrise is a special moment and we should take it as a nature’s gift. Having experienced noisy surroundings at Nahargarh Fort, I have found better ones which offer tranquail set-up. I have a couple of more pictures, will share them some other day. Do you enjoy sunrises?
