The day I shot the Qutub Minar was the day the Ayodhya verdict was being announced. People were warned to stay off the street, schools were closed early, and I was given a strict warning to get back to the hostel by afternoon. Well I did, and then restlessness hit by evening. Didn't want to to waste a day in the city by staying indoors. So a friend and I decided we would go sightseeing anyway and reached the Qutub Minar just as daylight was dying. I'm kind of glad we went so late because I managed to get some great night shots of it. The airport is close by to the place and there are planes flying by every now and then. The shot above shows an airplane's path through the sky at 25s shutter speed.
