Welcome! I hope this will become a useful site for you as you look for in-depth information on destinations you might be interested in. I will paint an intimate portrait of some of the countries I have visited, the cities, the people, the land and the abundance of wildlife. The posts are thoroughly researched and annotated, with links to original references and bibliography. The links I provide are credible and useful. I am scrupulous about the information I post here.
This site is meant for serious, well-informed travelers who wish to find out more about destinations they are planning to visit. The content is based on a combination of my personal experience and my own research on what has been written about such destinations by professionals in scientific, peer-reviewed journals. The images you will see in my blog posts or galleries are those I have shot during my travels. This is not your usual travel blog.
I exclusively use Canon products, mainly the incredible 21 MP Canon 5D Mark II DSLR and the tack-sharp 70-200 mm F/2.8L II IS USM telephoto zoom lens, the exceptional Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Super Telephoto Lens, and a Manfrotto carbon fiber tripod.
Thanks for visiting. Please support wild life conservation.Diponkar Banerjee
