Nepal - twenty years ago this month
Hard to believe it's been twenty years since I was in Nepal - we logged over 160 miles on elephants from Corbett National Park in Northwest India to Bardia National Park in Southwest Nepal. Pradeep Rana - our venerable guide- accompanied us through this unstudied wilderness where we slept amongst the tigers, rhinos and giant elephants that roamed free through Kipling's jungle.
I had the privilege of encountering and photographing the largest Asian elephants on record; these restless giants can be seen on my Flickr account http://www.flickr.com/photos/focaldreams/sets/72157627190078812/). They have long since been relinquished back to the soil - through old age and poaching. Such is the vanishing wilderness of our planet. I am still remastering this series and will hopefully sometime soon get the black and white images loaded and possibly create a book about the adventure, to record if nothing else for the notoriety of the adventure.
I hope to go back someday for a visit.
