Lazy Sunday Photo- Lion Cubs at Gir National Park, Gujarat

A Lion Cub at Gir National Park, Gujarat

These are the pictures of my closest sightings. And there was no way to avoid the noise in the picture for me. The likes of Nayan Khanolkar were not even shooting still, the light was so low. But then for anย amateur like me these pictures are prized possessions.

Looks can be Deceptive!

This was the shot which I dared to show to Nayan, and he replied “That is a record keeping shot.” When I protested he replied, “Don’t take it otherwise but I have seen thousands of pictures and even though I don’t intend to, I end up saying something that is not liked.” He had a reputation in the camp for putting aย dampener on what you thought was a very good picture. But as he said, he meant no offense and none was taken by anyone.

My Gir National Park Trip was a part of Skoda Yeti ROWE contest.

  2. Tarun, he he. I am glad the cub was not in a mood for lunch.

    Jagdeep, I agree my first sightings in 5 outings to different national parks.

    Thanks Fida.

    Sunita, I definitely cherish my interaction with Nayan for I got to learn a lot. And many thanks for stopping by.

  3. I could see the light was low seen from the digital noise in the picture. But takinng the shot was important on such occasions than the technical quality of the pic. I was looking for some experience of Gir National park.

    • Shridharan many thanks for the comment. The complete Gir story will be coming out soon.
