Akasya trees or raintree (Samanea saman) are towering above other vegetation in this side of the highway. It is untypical canopy for this tree, but they are regularly pruned to behave that way. Fruit trees below them need partial shading for proper growth and development.
This is a scene in one of the toll gates. I like the combination of the hedge colors here.
It would be very nice if the bus will just stop here for me to take nicer shots of this landscape. I love the white sugarcane flowers in the foreground. They glisten with the afternoon sun, but they gently sway with the wind, producing the blurry effects.
The sun here is already hiding beyond the tall bamboos. How i love to have a long zoom lens on the ground to take this scene. Never mind, a private car one of these days will solve this wish.
I am joining Tina's PicStory to give them some deviation from the winter grey skies at the other side of the world. Our tropical skies seldom get grey in the whole year.
