The picture titled ‘Blooming Friends’ by Shaiq Bashir is the winner of Gulf Times Instagram contest’s seventh installment.
Bashir, a Pakistani expatriate living in Qatar for three years, is working as instrument maintenance superintendent with Qatar Fertiliser Company.
He says the photo of marigold flowers was taken in his garden in Mesaieed during the last winter.
The photo shows the vibrant colours of the flowers grown in a desert country like Qatar and Bashir says the picture could encourage citizens and residents to take up gardening.
The winning entry was among the 14 photographs selected for the contest.
