ALBERTA, CANADA: Cowboy country: I had the opportunity to photograph horses and cowboys while staying at one of the many ranches in Alberta. The warm morning light created the effect of a lot of shadows and highlights; I slightly underexposed the image to accentuate it.

YAMUNA GHAT, NEW DELHI What the flock!: I recently discovered Yamuna Ghat, a gem in New Delhi, and was reminded of the holy city of Varanasi. Hundreds of brown-headed gulls migrate to the Indian subcontinent in the winter, and I got to spot them at Yamuna Ghat. In addition to these birds, seagulls also migrate from Siberia, and the locals are generous enough to feed these birds on a daily basis hoping they bring luck.
Photographer: Reader Manish Jaisi
ISTANBUL, TURKEY: Bridge, please: On my flight from Malta to Istanbul, I kept my camera handy as I knew I would get an opportunity to capture some beautiful landscape shots. After snapping a few images, I could see a bridge over the blue Mediterranean Sea. Immediately, I took several photos. This bridge, known as Bosphorus Bridge, is one of three suspension bridges that spans the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul, Turkey, and connects Europe and Asia.
