Wildlife and landscape photographs from two trips to India

The Indian Sub-Continent is vast and contains it's own unique wildlife. The distances involved and the intricacies of its transport systems can be daunting. I travelled to India in 1999 and 2000 in company with two good friends who were very experienced India hands, and who (I'm grateful to say) took charge of the arrangements.

This was not a wildlife safari, but rather a trip with strong elements of wildlife watching. Indian wildlife is more wary than that in Africa, and in consequence i did not take as many photos.

Whilst  my passion is for wildlife photography, I couldn't miss the chance of seeing the Taj Mahal. Despite seeing it in photos beforehand, you can't help but be impressed by the whole scene when you walk through the arch for the first time. I've tried to convey the way the Taj sits in it's surroundings, showing the side temples and the river.  

 

My first trip was to Goa, and the second a more extensive trip taking in Ranthambore National Park, Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary,Kanha N.P. as well as Delhi and Agra.
