"Rainbows apologize for angry skies"

After the clearing of the storm

Rawal Lake, just after a storm

One thing I love about this city is that the best spots are least crowded in good weather. By good weather, I mean bad weather, which is potentially good for photography. The hills and the lake (especially the dam section with the outrageous 15Rs entry) provide opportunity for breathtaking photography on a partially rainy day. All you have to do is predict when the skies may open up, and be at the right spot in time.

    Thanks, its nervously good to be here. *shivers*not one who likes to talk in public*

    Yeah, it’s great, even though we lost the blue skies and a lot of wonderful trees over the past decade. SubhanAllah

    May I know why you find the Rs 15 entry charge outrageous? I personally think the users pay system helps in the maintenance of public parks.

    Because there is rarely space there to park (and I assume its parking fee they charge). There seems to be little maintenance there as well, compared to the lush Daman-e-Koh area charges only 1/3rd the amount.
