Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2015
Special Mention: Aditya Singh
Year after year, big cat photographer Aditya Singh
slams us with unbelievable images from Ranthambhore. You wouldn’t be judged for mistaking this frame to be a stitched ‘stop-motion’ of a single tiger Panthera tigris
circumventing the Rajbagh lake. In reality though, it is a tigress with three near grown-up cubs who dot the left side of this frame. Special for so many reasons beyond the fact that it was taken with an infrared camera, this superbly balanced, skillfully-focused image, wordlessly explains why Ranthambhore remains a hotspot for wildlife aficionados.
