Shot on a cloudy winter night, this photo shows the beauty of Islamabad and the adjoining Margalla Hills. My friends and I waited in the cold at this spot to capture the light trails left by cars coming up the hills and returning after enjoying a hilltop dinner with an amazing view.
This was shot back in 2012 after a long hike in the Margalla Hills. Upon reaching the ridge at the top, this sight of the setting sun greeted us. The haze made it look like the moon and gave a beautiful monochrome glow to the surrounding area.
Margalla Hills border the city of Islamabad on it’s northern side and offer beautiful views at sunrise and sunset. They can be reached with a few minutes drive from most areas of the city and have some amazing hiking tracks. This shot was taken on October 12th, 2012, from hiking trail No.5.
