was the case with my earlier upload of BZA,i had to sweat it out again in order to capture these images when the mercury was hitting the roof in the month of May 2014 with temperatures hitting mid - 40's but hey! no one's complaining as such kinda weather conditions tend to provide - Crisp,Sharp images that are good to look at.The images were taken during a period of 3 days and i also had to suffer a bit of disappointment of not being able to capture more images of the station as the one thing that always derails my session is a - 'Dead Battery'.I tried to my best to cover the station from all angles possible.Now,without wasting any time i will get into the thick of things.
