Photos Added: India 2015 Travel & Culture

In early 2015 I scouted India as a prospective destination for future wildlife tours.  I spent nearly a month there, splitting time between the Himalayas (where I went to look for snow leopards) and the central part of the country (where tigers were my main goal).

Though wildlife was my primary focus, I did have a couple opportunities to explore some cultural sites and interact with some of the locals.  This included enjoying a couple home stays in Ladakh during my Himalaya adventures.  Though I did not dedicate much time to photographing people and cultural sites, I was pleased with a few of the travel photos taken during the trip.

You may view the full gallery (primarily consisting of images from northern India) here.  A preview is below.
