Experiencing Twilight – Ziarat, Balochistan

twilignt Experiencing Twilight   Ziarat, Balochistan

Sunrises, sunsets and twilight have always been my point of attention. No matter whereever i am traveling to, whatever i am doing, i always stop by at sunset and observe the wonderful colors in the sky. Its like a magic. Like not real. Or real but not from this world. Every single second of it is a treat to my eyes.

First week of september 2011, a usual visit to Ziarat, a usual picnic, a usual shooting, i was on my way back to the city of Quetta. I was on road while the sun showed its last glance and set behind the mountains. The color of the sky started changing from light blue to dark blue and to orange. I was already observing it with my eyes wide open. I wanted a spot to pullover to take the best possible photo.

There it came. A dam. Far away. I knew that is the point i need to capture this moment. I pulled over. Rushed towards the dam. Found the best possible reflection. Clicked. But other then clicking, i observed more of the nature and got indulged into this beauty.

Not only Ziarat, i have seen such beautiful twilights in every single part of Pakistan. Be it in to the farm fields of Punjab, high end mountains in Gilgit-Baltistan,  Sand dunes of Cholistan and every single part of this country.

Have you ever EXPERIENCED any twilight? share it icon smile Experiencing Twilight   Ziarat, Balochistan

  1. From Carol Jones:

    Occasionally I will go to work before the sun comes up. I park my car and walk towards the building. It is very quiet. Sometimes, if it is a clear morning, the sky is the deepest shade of sapphire blue. A shining cresent moon may hang low in the sky, and perhaps the brightest planet, Venus, sparkles like a jewel. This sight fills me with awe and on such occasions I must stop to admire it, and my heart gives thanks God for the beautiful things He has created.

    You are making me love Pakistan more and more, Danial!

    Assalam Alaikum
    Nice capture…. But that moment is always awesome
    Very Peacefull and lovely moment. it seems like we are lost in that moment.

    Whenver i experience such moment i never move from it till tht show stops….
    Always absorbed in it hours after such twilights. :D

    When i was kid i used to sit on abandoned Bridge near Native Jetty Bridge at Karachi. with a view of Port and twilight, i used to go there an hour before sunset :D and used to leave after the show was over :D

    Now this Bridge is part of Port Grand… I lost that place.

    And since long time hvn’t experinced twilight :(

      @Aasim: truly said. But that requires a lot of effort to do that, its not God gifted but you have to give up something to get something :)
