Mystical South India – Tamil Nadu and Kerala Photography Tours

Flower market, Tiruvannamalai

India is a photographer's paradise. It seems like every time I round a corner in Chennai or Tiruvannmalai there is something colorful and interesting to be captured. Many of the photos on my blog of Tiruvannamalai were taken by family members (my husband's sister and her partner) when they visited us in December and January, 2011 and 2012. I have an inexpensive digital camera that takes OK photos, but to really capture the rich colors of India it helps to have better equipment than this.

My sister-in-law, Geraldine Westrupp, and her partner, Martin Sammtleben, run a photography tour each winter (December-January) in Tamil Nadu and Kerala called Mystical South India. With visits to Tiruvannamalai, Mahabalipuram,  Gingee Fort, the French sea-side state of Pondicherry, and Cochin  (just some of the stops on the Mystical South India tour) visitors get a taste of South India with the assistance of two experienced photographer/tour guides. Wild Photography Holidays takes photography groups all over the world to scenic locales like Iceland, Norway, Spain, and Bhutan as well as South India. 

   Please visit their website at http://wildphotographyholidays.com/ and travel around the world through the lenses of their cameras.

    The photos on today's blog post are all from Wild Photography Holiday's website. Enjoy!
