A View to Kill
This is such a simple picture, but in reality, it was far from simple to capture. For a start, I am shooting out of a caged vehicle in temperatures of minus 30 degrees and the driver’s command of English was non-existent. I had an interpreter with me, but she only served to give collateral to the provenance of the expression “Chinese whispers” rather than give me the right angle of view. It was a testing morning for sure – but that’s why pictures as immersive and low level as this are rare – indeed the previous day we got nothing. I had to be lower than the tiger and that requires a huge amount of luck in terms of the tiger’s movement patterns.
