The Rays of Hope!
On 30th March 2015, when we were on a safari in Dhikala Range of JCNP, India, at around 4 pm, we crossed the wooden bridge in search of Parwali Tigress whom a fellow wildlife lover had seen in the morning itself. But as we found nothing, we decided to come back towards Dhikala grasslands and as we were crossing the bridge back, the weather started to threaten to get bad with lot of clouds and an overcast sky. I asked our friend Danish Mallik to stop the car near the temporary bridge and picked up my other camera with the wide angle lens and started clicking some landscapes (posted this morning).
Me and my friends got a little worried about the weather but We saw sunlight filtering through the dark clouds. I immediately changed lens from Tokina 11-16 , f/2.8 to Nikon 70-200 mm f/2.8 VR and clicked this. At that time, these literally looked like Rays of Hope for better weather to continue our Safari.
