PUSHKAR, RAJASTHAN: Old monk: During my trip to Pushkar earlier this year, I found a group of men dressed in white. This old man was standing away from the group, as if he were waiting for someone. I had to wait a while in the chaos to be able to capture his facial expression perfectly.

LEH, JAMMU & KASHMIR: In the Thik(sey) of it!: This photograph of the Thiksey Monastery was taken earlier this year. Along with the monastery, I wanted to capture the natural, beautiful colours of the hill. The clear blue sky served as the perfect backdrop.
Photographer: Reader Ajit More
RANTHAMBORE TIGER RESERVE, RAJASTHAN: Eye of the tiger: This photograph was taken during a game drive in the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve in April this year. It was mid-afternoon and the tigress Noor, along with her three female cubs, was resting near a watering hole. I had to wait for nearly three hours before I could see any noticeable movement. The cubs finally woke up in the evening and I managed to click this photograph of one of them.
Photographer: Reader Mahendra Jain
AMAZON, BRAZIL: Safe passage: I was on a boat from the town of Manaus up the Río Negro. It was the driest year in maybe decades, people said. The water level was very low and we got stuck many times. Passengers were hanging in hammocks, trying to sleep, but the crew went back and forth in their speedboats to check the river depth in front of us and guide the ship. The people in the picture are the captain and a man from his team. After working hard all night, here they are having a moment to relax and chat in the sun.
