Little Rann Of Kutch

Little Rann Of Kutch I have just returned from a wonderful trip in the Indian state of Gujarat. I had gone there to photograph the Asiatic Lions who live in the Gir National Forest or Sasan Gir as it is also know in the south of the state.

As I trundled along on the Bhuj Express Train from Mumbai, I began reading about a place called The Little Rann Of Kutch. It's situated just to the North of Sasan Gir and has turned out to be a revelation in photographic opportunities.

It's here where India gets around 80% of it's Salt during the dry season. During the monsoon, it's the main area for Prawn farming. The Hindus are the salt workers and the Muslims the fisherman. Who says there needs to be conflict. It's a harmonious arrangement and a welcome change to the constant conflict that inhabits our troubled world.

I am in the process of writing my account of the trip which will be available to accompany the images within the next month. A selection of the images can be found in the 'portfolio' section of the website.

I look forward to your feedback...
