From my window of Gynaecology Unit 2, District Headquarters Hospital, Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan, in the wee hours of the morning, in between patient CTGs.
That’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw this picture in my photography album. I wanted to post it to give a slight change to the winter pictures going around. This picture, like most I take, was from a moving vehicle with I think an iPad; though I usually use a phone.
Anyway this picture was taken from the motorway while travelling from Islamabad to Faisalabad, Pakistan.
These pictures were taken ages ago but I never had the time to post them before now. These were taken in a mango orchard near Multan a city in Punjab, Pakistan. It was really beautiful and we had lots of fun there with our cousins. Everywhere you looked the trees were drooping with mangoes. They were green and later we were told that when you take the mangoes off the trees they’re initially green, then they’re put into boxes with a special chemical which after a few days ripens them and turns them yellow.
We went in June and since Pakistan is pretty close to the Equator the temperature was pretty high. BUT the trees provided so much shelter that the sunlight hardly touched us. It wasn’t even that hot until we left the orchard……So basically if you want a cool back garden, plant trees! Lol though you probably already know that.
I took this picture from a moving car when me and my family went to Murree,Pakistan to cool down from the heat in the lowlands during summer of 2010.
