Corbett National Park, named after the famed conservationist Jim Corbett, is one of India’s premier wildlife sanctuaries.
It’s proximity to the capital, New Delhi, makes it one of the most desired weekend trips amongst the locals.
Roughly a 4-hour drive (240 Kms) takes you into the heart of nature where flora and fauna come together and offer city dwellers with a wow experience, in the form of a fresh perspective to clean, fresh, and natural living.
What I did discover instead was that there is a lot more to nature than spotting a single animal.
Beauty is all around. It can be in an abandoned ant hill, a bird perched atop a barren tree, or in beautiful sunsets that grace the land at the end of every day.
There seems to be beauty in nothingness, and weirdly enough, there’s a sense of tranquility in that feeling.
Any national park is a photographer’s delight, and although I did not have a zoom lens with me, I still managed to capture some of Corbett’s raw beauty.
Here are but a few select photographs from the long weekend.
