Chapter 3 Travels to the Edge
is now ready for your entries!
I have assembled a gallery of images from my first travels this year. They are posted below. In January I was in India, photographing in the desert Kutch, wild Kanha National Park and along the lush Kerala coast; I transitioned from that subtropical clime to snowy Yellowstone National Park. February took me back to India's remote Ladakh region in a quest for snow leopards; hiking every day at altitude I lost seven pounds and found the cats extraordinarily difficult to photograph, but all in all it was a rewarding return to the High Himalaya.
Keep on traveling & exploring!
