A Sky Full Of Color
Badlands, South Dakota

Another re-edit!

South Dakota’s Badlands are probably one of my favorite places on this planet. This was taken August 9th, 2011 during a solo backpacking adventure. It had to of been 110 °F (43 °C) during the day. At night, it probably dropped down to 70 °F (21 °C). Colorful sunsets are the norm for this part of the world.

“Islamabadi through and through, I’m an ex-blogger, self-employed photographer and fixer with a major in Psychology. My photography career started as a hobby in 2012 from the roads of Islamabad and since then I’ve been out and about capturing the beauty of my city. I’ve worked with clients like USAID, UNICEF, UNESCO, BBC, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation etc., and some of my work has been published in major newspapers and online media.”

Pictures featured, top to bottom:
1.) Monal Restaurant in Margalla Hills From Trail 3: An avid hiker since childhood, I have always enjoyed Trail 3 in Margalla Hills for its picturesque view of the capital city. A place of peace, calm and tranquility which is a signature of Islamabad.
2.) North-East view of Islamabad from Trail 3.
3.) F9 Park: Evening walks in this park are a ritual, and every visit presents a scenic view that demands to be captured. 
4.) Misty forest: Clouds descend on Margalla Hills giving the forest a very spooky appearance. 
5.) A roadside view of Murree Hills that made me fall in love almost instantly.
