There were two most important shots i wanted to take of Quetta city; a sunset and a night glow. I got to know that the most splended view of the city can be viewed from the mountain range in east of the city. That meant i can get a beautiful sunset shot as well as night view.

Reaching there wasn’t a hurdle at all and we reached to the perfect spot in no more than 45 minutes. While i was waiting for the perfect light and setting up my camera, Rauf, my driver waited for me with 2 cups and a thermos full of tea. Rauf was a good driver who accompanied me during my Expedition Balochistan Summer 2010.

I still miss Rauf’s company and the cup of tea we shared at that unique beautiful place.

The night view of Quetta City that i could come up with is:
