Oh thank you for displaying these Michael! I loved every minute of it….can we go again please?
Nice! I love the architecture. There’s not much like it anywhere!
Great pictures. Your photography definatley has that Golden touch. Did you use a filter?
Thank you and nice to see you on here. The shots were taken through my sun glasses!!!
Sunglasses huh. Nice touch. Simple, effective. Definitely going to try this. But before that, need to buy a golden sunglasses.
Found mine in Burma, made in 1991. A great buy!
I have a photo of the same sadhu. the guy sitting on the right. he is by the tree on the way to the fort entrance. i was there in October 2011 for Diwali and went out for a walk early one morning and met him. Love your photos. I’m going to try the sunglasses trick next time.
Did you pay him 5 rupies???!!! Thank you for your kind coments 🙂 pinky

Hi Mikalee…Thanks for your lovely comment 🙂
one of my favorite cities….I wish i went there now instead of 7 years back..Would had LOVED to capture it.. beautiful clicks…Love that your white balance is yellowish…very fitting to the theme of Jaisalmer itself 🙂
Lovely photos! The golden orange haze renders them that much more lush and exciting.
Thank you. So pleased you enjoyed the work. Enjoy the blog 🙂
Amazing pictures! The one that strikes me most is of the belly dancer wearing a veil over her face–it actually makes her more alluring!
I agree – I think it may be a man??!! Look again 🙂 Thank you for looking 🙂
I have never been to India but I love the history and the ideas that have come about over the thousand of years Hinduism has been around. The temples are beautiful and I loved learning about the Gods and Goddesses. The Photos you posted were amazing and I enjoyed looking them over. Thank you for sharing.
India is amazing. You should try to visit??? Thank you for looking 🙂
Wonderful photographs. I love the sunglasses idea. It creates such a “desert feel,” like I can feel the sun beating down on me…very nice. 🙂
Thank you Snapshooter!

Namaste and thank you sir. Have a look through the blog….I have spent two years in India and LOVE IT!!!
i went to jaisalmer some 2 yrs back n u just made my memomories fresh.just a tip from me to all those who wanna visit rajasthan: remember there’s much more to rajasthan than just the palaces…go deep inside and discover more!
I really like the feeling imparted with these images. I greatly enjoyed them.
Pleased you enjoyed 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to look 🙂
Gorgeous photos! Loved seeing a glimpse of life in India.
Two months left in India so lots more to come. Thank you for your kind words 🙂 Pinky
Ohhh, the memories. Thanks for a roundup of the city. Seems like a festival/carnival was going on at the time you were there.
nice photos, thanks for sharing!
Beautiful pictures….. Jaisalmer is famous for camel safari (night) and sand dunes.
Thank you x
Beautiful pictures..glorious Rajasthan… Jaisalmer is famous for its sand dunes and camel safari,also in nights.
The view of the fort and the city through a window is just amazing.Wonderful pictures.
That sadhu (one of the pair) is a permanent fixture and part of the fortress furniture .. we have all seen him (he was there last year and years past when I went to Jaisalmer) and paid him his dues but he is a colourful and iconic figure and part of why we love crazy and zany India !
I love My India and proud to be an Indian. The images are making my heart to be pound off my body. Thanks for sharing.
I love India also. My heart has been here for ten years!!!!!!
beautiful colors! Nice!
Yey…THANK YOU SO MUCH 🙂
Captivating photos!! Really appreciated the variety! Especially loved the young woman dancing!
Thank you Michele!
I visited Jaisalmer two years ago and the two sadhus sitting under the tree are still there! Some pictures are good while others are too warm for my taste.
My own thoughts on Jaisalmer:
Spectacular photos! Thank you!
Wow, what a surprise! I was kinda expecting the more usual travelogue’ish sharing of your trip and I just love that instead I find a very unigue and cool stream of consciousness kinda univers. I just returned from India myself and Jaisalmer ended up being sacrificed for Dharamsala so THANK YOU for sharing your amazingly beautiful pics – I will include the desert next time 🙂
Charlotte. The desert is a must…. How was Dharamsala? Thank you for you super kind words >) Pinky
Well Dharamsala (and Mcleodganj) was wonderful and completely diff than the rest of India – very Tibetan! If you haven’t been there yet, maybe you should include that on your next trip 🙂
Its on my list!!:)

Those are some really amazing shots. I really want to travel to that part of the world some day!!!
Thank you Edward….Do IT!! 🙂
Amazing photos! I am currently in India, going from the Golden Triangle to Himachal Pradesh and then down to Goa – about to get on the first of 2 trains on what will be an epic 45 hour journey…and your post is helping me remember why I wanted to come to this crazy, amazing, beautiful country in the first place 🙂 I didn’t have a great camera to start with, and then I lost the battery (!) so now I’m on my iPhone until I can get a new battery – suffice to say my photos aren’t as amazing as yours – congrats and great post 🙂
Hi…Yey for being in India. If you heading to Goa deffo make the trip to Gokarna….Its amazing!!! Battery in Delhi?!. Thank you for your lovely words and comment 🙂 Pinky

Fascinating story telling.
First time on your site and these are beautiful photos so will be visiting again. I am sat here shivering in the UK and just soaking in the golden hues has made me feel warm. Gorgeous.
Hi And thank you….. I myself will be back in the Uk in six weeks…Yak!! Pleased the shots warmed you up 🙂
WOW, these images are absolutely stunning. So beautiful and I love the colors. The fourth photo is amazing, although it’s pretty hard to pick favorites!
thank you sooooo much Halie. Love the name of your blog…will check it out!! 🙂
These pics are wonderful!
Beautiful shots…reminded me of my visit to Jaisalmer…it has a fairy-tale sort of feel to the place..
Wow, you did a great job on the photography, it makes me think I should travel more.
You should!!! Thank you for your comment 🙂
Really great work!
Beautiful display of lights,,,,Back in 2010 Diwali I was going to this incredible place , yet I cancelled due to some work. The awe of Rajasthan has always impacted me deeply, i was sure Jaisalmer would have taken it to a different turn. Will surely witness it in person.
I love the use of light in your photos!
Reblogged this on awomynous and commented:
I visited Jaisalmer almost 12 years ago (wow, can’t believe it’s been that long!), and these pictures truly capture what I remember the city looking like. The color of sand but beautiful; gold, brown, gray, tan, all exquisitely carved and everything stacked on top of everything else.
Thank you for re blogging the post. Good memories!!
beautiful use of colour on your photos! Great job dude
Thank you Dude 🙂
Great shots … but for some reason I couldn’t stop staring at the banner on top. Hilarious.

Wow these photos are amazing!
wow ,nice photos
Fantastic title (most apt) and fantastic photographs, they really look stunning.
Just one question though, did you use a lens filter for some of the shots or was there something else that you used for the yellowed/gold effect – which looks amazing by the way!
Thank you…..The shots were all taken through my cheap yellow sun glasses!!!!
cheap or not, the result speaks for itself! Kudos for the creativity.
these pictures speak for themselves! congratulations, they are amazing! 🙂
Thank you so much :0
Such amazing warming colourful photos, I second that – congrats..
Thank you soooooo much! 🙂 🙂
Excellent snaps. Went to Jaisalmer in 2007. Excellent place though i am surprised not to see the standard snap of the fort.
Reblogged this on Ash's Blog and commented:
Truly a Gold. Jaisalmer is one place which I always crave to visit but never have. I have always seen it through blogposts or ads. Loved the post.
It sounds like you make good use of your travelling down time.
The culture is so vivid, colorful and it oozes from your photos effortlessly.
The difference between seeing photos of a place when researching it online and reading a blog with personal photos is that…, you feel the place through the experience of a real individual. Somehow, if only for a moment, their photos and stories transport you there and you even think to yourself “i can’t wait to go back”. Because momentarily, you were there.
Thanks for the trip!
Very nice pictures.
wow! I haven’t yet visited Rajasthan. Your posts make me long for the next vacations!
One of the reasons why i do them. They take me back to that place, that trip. Hopefully my posts take you on vacation!!! 🙂
Of course! There’s this amazing serenity captured in these pictures. Great work!
These pictures are truly amazing, the colors are beautiful!
Thank you soooo much!!!
