They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes, if you let it, a picture becomes an experience worth ten thousand.

Images allow you to travel through space and time. They allow you to relive your own memories and even those of others. They allow you to journey across continents and visit places you may have been in previous lifetimes. 

A good picture has the power to draw us in, lock our attention for hours on end, ruffle our spirits, and provoke our imaginations.

"Who knew that the winds of Kymara, an area of Nagarhole National Park, would someday bring home a creature that would slowly become the soul of this forest. He rules the tallest trees and commands the flight of ravens. He brings new order to a timeless jungle that now radiates around his enigmatic aura. He is the perfect paradox and without a doubt the hardest cat I ever tracked. He is my biggest challenge and my greatest reward. This particular individual has become a phenomenon as he is one of the first individual melanistic leopards in the wild to be documented this closely."
