Aha, that is a jungle cat. It was shot through intervening undergrowth, that is why it looks like that. Had to use some manual focus to get the eyes.

Yes it is. But the quality of the photograph was amazing. I revisited this photograph few times again to feel the moment. Great timing, cool focus and the surroundings only add to the portrait. Amazing stuff. Thanks again.

Sharing a few recently processed photos.

Heard that it is raining heavily in Ranthambore. The yellow landscape would have turned green.

Can I come???

Awesome travelogue and love the pictures. I was in Jim Corbett during christmas last year. 4 safaris - No tigers. I know what you mean about not staying in cities, there is something different about staying in a forest. May be the lack of rules, pollution, Traffic, noise. etc etc. Or may be its just the mystery. Everything that is missing in our cities.

Hello Nilanjanray:
Great narration and very good photographs. Was that tiger (in the B&W Page1) snarling or was it the end of a yawn? Both seem similar. we also wanted to spend a night at Jogi Mahal, but alas, it was not possible.

Its been raining heavily in Ranthambore, and all reservoirs are full. A lot of places have become slushy and treading there is no walk in the park. Every nala feels like a river crossing and the current is also strong. Here are two images from the last sunday.

Yawning, not snarling. Wouldn't have been good if it had been snarling, it would have meant that we (humans) were disturbing it.

Looks very different now. I like the first shot, gives a feel of the place.

A B&W shot of the young tiger on the wall.

What an awesome travelogue Nilanjan! Really enjoyed the writeup and marvellous camerawork.

Have you heard of a place called Ratapani Jungle Lodge in MP? How about we do a joint visit soon?
