Taj Mahal in evening lights!

We did sight seeing in northern India for about 10 days. And of course the first attraction was Taj Mahal! I visited this beautiful monument after about 22 years... i.e. first time in my adult life. It was a memorable experience to see and apprecitae this beautiful work of art and engineering.
We also visited Fatehpur-Sikri, New Delhi, Gokul, Mathura, Vrindavan, Haridwar, Hrishikesh and Panna (MP).
Through out the tour, I carried 3 lenses with me.
- 18-55mm F3.5/5.6 : the kit lense
- 50mm F1.8 : the prime
- 17-40mm F4.0L : my proude new purchase for this trip
So what did I really use the most?
17-40mm F4.0L ... exclusively.
Why ? Mostly because ...
- it was the best quality of lens I had with me
- and because I did not want to even attempt to change lens while I am lugging my camera bag on shoulder, a heavy camera and a heavy lens in one hand and carrying my one year old daugher in the other hand :-) ! Camera, The L lense, My daughter... can't drop any of them, can I ? :-)
