These distant shots of a tree were taken in Chakrata area, flowers were borne in terminal clusters, no leaves were seen.. I do not have any more pics, as this was inaccessible..
Can this be any Firmiana sp. or any other genus? 

Thanks, … May I request you to pl. post the original picture

Probably Firmiana fulgens.

Thanks … Here is the full resolution picture, if this can help.. I feel this is only slightly better, due to being distant shot.. Attachments (1)- 5 Mb.
