Rock Fort at Sunrise, India.
According to National Geographic, this photo was taken by David Lazar and was part of the 2008 International Photography Contest.
The caption read: “This photo is taken at the top of the 83-meter-high Rock Fort—the only outcrop in the otherwise flat land of the city of Trichy in Tamil Nadu, India. I awoke for the climb at sunrise, in order to capture the colours from the sun radiating over the hazy city. Looking back down, we see one of many decorative Hindu temples in the area of the Rock Fort.”
