Tiger Photo Gallery - select photographer in right column

JV urges all photographers, professional or amateur, to make their tiger pictures speak, to share their tiger experiences through pictures! A majestic species is slipping to extinction. He has formed Tiger Photo Gallery and he is inviting all photographers who have visited Tiger Canyons or any Tiger Sanctuary, for that matter, to submit 6 of your most interesting pictures to Tiger Photo Gallery. Tell us what effect the tiger had on you, the influence, the inspiration. Give us ideas on how, together, we can use our pictures to create pressure. We have the ability to communicate globally. We have websites, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, cell phones and email at our disposal, let's use them! Remember to caption your pictures and send them to info@jvbigcats.co.za

I’m not sure about the quality of these shots but they fulfil an ambition I had had for most of my life. I first visited India about 10 years ago, going up to Corbett Park for a few days. I didn’t see a tiger, nor on my next Indian excursion to SARISKA?! We saw a leopard and the visitors book had a sighting the previous week. When news came through that there were no longer any tigers in Sariska, I thought back and it seemed to be the last sighting had been just weeks after my visit. 
My third visit was to Bandhavgarh, followed by Kanha – 12 different tigers in all, including following a tigress at a distance for about 2kms as she marked her territory –stunning and I will be forever grateful for Indy, our guide, who realized the tigress who had been sitting all morning, may be about to do that. 
I am now resident in Turkey but hope over the next couple of years both to return to India, and return to Southern Africa, where I have been many times, but this time to see Tiger Canyons.
