DIVINE LIGHT, Lake Bratan, Indonesia : For me, this was the “bucket shot” of the Ulun Danu Beratan Temple from my trip to Bali. Prior to my journey, I had seen a lot of images of the island and wanted to capture a unique photo of Bali’s beautiful temples. I set out early in the morning and waited for that perfect shot. As soon as the sun began to rise, I started clicking. By the end of my photo session, I finally had an image that proved that Bali was truly the “Island of the Gods”.

RAIN CHECK, The Sunderbans, West Bengal : To be fully immersed, literally, in a monsoon rain storm in the Sundarbans is a phenomenal experience. Our boat was tossed around in the turbulent waters, as torrential rain stung the water like bullets from above. Despite trying to photograph this scene from the covered deck of our launch boat, I ended up drenched in this frightening, yet delightful downpour that overwhelmed all my senses. The dense mangroves, visible on the far side, form one of the biggest mangrove forests in the world. The Sundarbans is home to over 200 bird species, amphibians, reptiles and most famously, the ”man-eating tigers“. For many, experiencing torrential tropical rains in all their glory makes the monsoons their favourite time to visit the Sundarbans.
