Sunday 9pm at 11th Floor

It was an ordinary evening, I had just dropped my 8 year old to the keyboard classes and I saw strong beams of light moving around in the night sky. A spectacle I had only seen in the United States when I had been to my company’s New Year party. Curiosity took the better of me and I climbed to the 11the floor terrace with my camera. I discovered that they were searchlights from the Hi-Tex,Hyderabad the exhibition facility.

Long exposures at night are fun. It was a beautiful sky despite the moon out of site(sic)  and planet Jupiter right above my head! Yeah, it so happens that at this moment in the timeline of the Universe it is indeed right up there. But the photography shots I’m going to share with you captures the 270 degree world around my building at about 9pm.

As we pan from the southern most point you can sneak a view of the wonderful machinery of the construction activity at Lodha Estate.

A little to the right and you have the top-view of the MMTS Hi-Tech City station flanked to the left by the tall Lodha Estate Towers.

Notice the cyber towers in the background and on to the right the flyover under construction. A gaping hole right above where the rail way line crosses. What I like most are the series of light along the tracks next to the MMTS station.

As we move south-west we have the Hi-Tex Exhibition center. Look carefully you will be able to spot the search lights in the sky! They weren’t strong enough to leave a good impression 🙂

And if we go wide in that direction, we get a good view of the Indu Township. You maybe able to spot a walkway on the left and independent houses on the far right.

We were looking at West where the sun sets, now we turn our attention to the right that leads us to the beautiful road outside the Malaysian Township (Rain Tree Park) and also the beautiful curve presented by the series of towers in the township.

While I love the beautiful night sky and as you can see in all directions the skyline is still very thin. In years to come the construction activity would block all the views and I hope some day we look at this pictures and say- wow! You know what happened to the water tank?
