#travelwithgdp Fact: The famous Scandal point in Shimla is where the Ridge road meets the Mall road. The name originated as the Maharaja of Patiala fell in love with the daughter of the then Viceroy of India and without wasting much time he eloped with her from this very point. As a consequence of this, the British Government banned him from entering Shimla.
Description: Shimla is built on seven hills named as Inverarm hill, Bantony hill, Elysium hill, Observatory hills, prospect hill, summer hill and Jakhu hill. Arriving there by nightfall and leaving early morning, I knew I had very little time period to capture at least one of the hills. So I decided to try my hand for the first to take pictures with a DSLR on manual mode with hardly any light. After multiple failed attempts, I eventually captured this beauty and truly, it’s been one of the best that have taken during sunset/night.
