North-East India: 2013

Click on the small picture to see a larger, more detailed version. I toured Northeastern India in march 2013. Most of the photos were taken with a Canon SLR camera (T3i, 18 Mpixels) with a 100-400mm zoom lens, but I also use a Canon T1i (15 Mpixels) with an 18-100 zoom lens for scenery pictures.

I also visited India in March, 2011 in the Delhi area.

The larger pictures are in many cases larger than can be seen on the usual computer screen. Some viewers (e.g., Firefox) will show the picture sized to fit the screen and offer a button to display at the full resolution. When so displayed, scroll bars or other means are needed to roam around the picture. Note that I have cropped almost all pictures displayed here - this new camera has a lot of pixels!

The trip was quite strenuous, but very enjoyable. Other than Delhi and Kaziranga, the photography was difficult even if I had not had a bad cold. The small number of photos from Nameri and Eaglenest does not reflect the large numbers of birds seen there. The trip was led by Jan Hansen (dba Otus Asio Tours
