India Pictures & Photos


During my travels in India (8 trips) I took pictures with a 'point and shoot' camera with a good lens. These pictures are memories of beautiful and mystical places all over northern India. High in the Himalayas to the dusty hot wildlife parks in Rajastan I travelled. Hope you enjoy what I find fascinating!

I am planning a trip to the Himalayas this coming May, 2013 Join me.



My 'proverbial tiger shot' ! NOT easy to get, poor as it is. This tiger could have eaten us had it decided to turn and attack our open jeep!

At one spot there were peacock feathers scattered on the road and I asked the driver for one. He hesitated, stopped the jeep, quickly opened his door and grabbed one, then speeded off! Tigers are dangerous and he was not going to forget that.

My one and only tiger shot! Ranthambore Rajasthan India


This tiger photo was taken on my third venture into the Ranthambore Wildlife park in eastern Rajastan, by jeep. I reached this tiger park after futile efforts at the Jim Corbett Park to get in to see a tiger (the monsoon came a week early and the park roads were flooded out).

Since the monsoon came a little early travel in Rajasthan was possible, for awhile. The early monsoon turned out to be a false alarm and the intense heat returned while I was in Bharatpur visiting the Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary. What intense heat, it was hard to even leave Bharatpur while it was sooo very hot. The forests I have visited in India are filled with wild peacocks.
