This is a gallery of images from wild India. This site focuses on travel to wild places in the Indian subcontinent to get visitors to understand and appreciate her immense biodiversity. Sadly and not very surprisingly, India's biodiversity is disappearing at a rapid rate because of economic growth, habitat destruction, over-population pressures, pollution, rampant poaching....the list is endless.
It is my belief that responsible and sustainable travel to these natural areas - ecotourism - fosters better environmental understanding, appreciation, and eventually, aids in conservation. India offers fantastic opportunities for sustainable travel to these natural areas - from the high Himalaya down to the plains, jungle, swamp & desert. Additionally, photography as a tool provides an opportunity to drive education around critical conservation issues affecting India's habitats and wildlife. This site aims to leverage these two powerful tools.
These images have been organized as trip reports arranged in reverse chronological order. Each trip report is an album of images along with a trip report. Please select from the list of trip reports (thumbnails) below or from the list on the left. Images from my recent trips are hosted in the album 'latest images' though they are still work-in-progress. All images have been made with Canon Digital SLR cameras and Canon Telephoto (400mm/f4 DO, 500mm/f4, 800mm/f5.6) lenses. Some of the landscape images are made with a Leica M8 digital rangefinder camera. All my leica images are hosted here.
Enjoy the images & feel free to share your comments!
