An audience with the King of the Himalayas

After six months of preparation, I traveled the Himalayas for several months to take pictures of snow leopards. I intentionally did it on my own without any helpers, because every noise or smell might be sensed by the cats and reduce the chances of a meeting with them.

In contrast to the summer the landscape was very barren in winter, but not less beautiful. It was cold, of course, but that is ultimately only a question of the right equipment. It is always amazing that under such tough conditions animals can survive.
