Tour Expert

We had an unexpected encounter with the saw-scaled viper under the rocks where our tour leader was just about to take a brief pit stop. His quick presence of mind to check the rock gave other participants an opportunity to see the snake and make some good images out of it.

WHAT YOU LEARN

A great opportunity to observe, learn about and photograph the majestic cat in its dominion. You will understand the nuances of wildlife photography. How best to use the available light to create high impact images. How to positing yourself properly and wait for the right moment rather than go trigger happy. A lot of interactions on the field and off it regarding compositions and post processing will help you to up your photography skills many notches.

Kaas

Carpet of flowers

Kaas – the plateau of flowers, a beautiful tableland in Sahyadris turns magical during the September to October giving a short window of time for biologists and photographers. It’s a magical piece of land and is one of the global biodiversity hotspots. Kaas puts up a show during this time of the year with millions if not billions of shades of flowers. These flowers spread across the horizon and turn the scene dramatic with the play of lights amidst the clouds against the blue sky. This breathtaking event is what we want you to witness.

 

One can see various endemic and seasonal flowers starting from the insectivorous plants, sita’s tears, mickey-mouse, buckwheat, kumudini and many more gems.

 

Kaas is not only a botanist’s paradise but also a photographer’s heaven.
