Despite the harsh sun in summers, at times the sunset is remarkably beautiful. Jaipur temperature is currently soaring at 44-45 C. Earlier this week, I captured this picture of a sunset in Jaipur soon after a sandstorm. With the presence of sand particles in the atmosphere, sandstorms change the color of both the sky and the sun. I have previously posted a picture of Jaipur sky during a sandstorm. You can find this post here – Colors of the Sky/ Duststorm in Jaipur. I shot this picture at the Rambagh Golf club with a smartphone.
Even though the picture is not symmetrical according to the traditional concept of composition, there is something nice about the landscape. The color of the sky and blooming bougainvillea adds color to the frame while the background is filled up by the variety of local trees.
Rambagh Golf Club is an extension of Central Park Jaipur. Originally started in 1944 by Maharani Gayatri Devi, it was a part of the world-famous Rambagh Palace Hotel. It provides the city with a breathing space due to the green cover. Over the years the club became more elitist as it usually happens. With the new construction, a court case, the club is no more restricted to merely golf. It has many other activities and facilities which brings it a par with other clubs in the city. More on Rambagh Golf club, some other day!
