Cloudscape

Its rather rare that clouds appear when I hold a camera, so I couldnt let this opportunity pass by! And the last few weeks have been filled with more cloud than sunshine in any case.

The monument seen is Taramati Biradari. [From wiki] Abdullah Qutb Shah is believed to have enjoyed Taramati’s song even while at Golconda fort. Her melodious voice would be carried by the breeze, reaching the prince’s ear at the fort, because of the acoustics model, in the structure as well as that of the fort. It is celebrated as an amalgam of the romance and grace of the Middle Ages. The baradari with 12 doorways were to allow cross ventilation, considered to be the most ingenious technique at the time.
