so you think you can play with the big cats

In Bandhavgarh India, I had the opportunity to visit the national parks and take (multiple) safaris through the tiger reserve. All creatures there are free to roam, with the exception of a few unconnected fence lines intended to deter the big cats from the local villages. We enjoyed the unforgettable experience of sighting several wild tigers, including a couple of cubs. Aside from the awe of their beauty, large cats are truly fascinating creatures.

On one such occasion, this tiger returned back to the rainforest and over the 20’ fence… with a full grown bull caught in the grips of his jaw. photography:KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | leopard print dress c/o:MVN | leather biker jacket c/0:ALLSAINTS | combat boots:DR.

The silent mountains bathed in the clearest of spring lakes. The setting sun slowly painted and re-painted the horizon. Hues changed from the vivid lakes and trees of the day. Sunset transformed the earth to gold. Dusk settled in smokey pinks and blues. It was like watching the earth become reborn overnight.

Some seasons are hazy and dark. Sometimes it feels like the sun may never rise again. Yet, that beautiful circle of light rises each day.
