And there he is, Majestic and silent.
the images clicked with him moving were clicked in very diff conditions.
Sun had gone well below the mountain on the right,
over cast sky
and ISO being pumped up every few minutes ready to click away.
It is only in post process that these images are even worth viewing.
If you engage the image, you will notice the heavy graining.

So, decided, in Feb/Mar 2022, in white Spiti, I am coming back for the Snow Leopard.
Cheers.

Whoa.. Ramesh sir you are lucky and perseverance paid off.
Probably 800mm at least is what one would need!

Wow! Awesome. In my mind this is one of the ultimate thrills of Spiti circuit. We were also in Spiti in the first week of June - but it was unplanned and we did not know any guides that could take us for Snow leopard sightings. It would have been such a nice feeling to get to see and shoot the elusive snow leopard.
