It took me about a year to prepare the expedition to the Himalayas in search for the elusive snow leopard, the holy grail for photographers amongst cats. The road leading to the home of these cats was unexpectedly difficult with avalanches and shooting stones. After 3 days we arrived at destination. I was rewarded with 6 different sightings during my fortnight stay. Met great people sharing these wonderful experiences. Image shows a mother with her 2 cubs.
