Gulmohar Flowers Painting the Sky Red

Summer time in Chennai has Gulmohar trees bursting into their trademark reds/oranges/yellows.

This glorious specimen was painting the sky red. With a camera at hand, could anyone resist capturing it? I couldn’t.


By the by, Gul Mohar means Jewel from Gul (located in the Himalayan ranges). It’s fundamentally a mountain tree, that now grows all over India.
