Ten years of Zero3 images Ten is just a number, the roman number X, the number of fingers on our hands. But when you add years to it, it becomes a decade.  Then it starts to mean something.  In 2003 four wildlife buddies decided to formalize their relationship and formed zero3 images. Yes folks it’s been 10 years for zero3 images.  In 2003 zero3 images ...

Of Leeches and Flamingo and far off places. It had been a while since the four of us at Zero3images had made a trip together and with the overdose of long weekends we have been enjoying during the first quarter of 2013, we managed to coordinate our schedules to make a three day trip to Sinharaja. Palitha and his son Tharusha, Gehan and Harshi with one of their ...

LIFE, TRAVEL AND PRETTY FEATHERED THINGS….. 29th Oct. My life has always revolved around traveling. Mainly centering on wildlife and wild places, I have been fortunate to have traveled the length and breadth of our stunning island home. Sometime, life does throw us a curve ball which changes things; which makes the familiar, un-familiar and changes our priorities. Sadly, during a time like this, travel suffers. ...

Hi, I am Rajiv Welikala, and I am currently working in the garment industry, but my main love in life is wildlife, nature and photography. I am an avid amateur wildlife photographer, and have been into photography since I was a little boy. Even though I loved nature and wildlife I never had the opportunity to visit our national parks ...

To follow a Leopard The leopard is the quintessential cat. They out number all other big cats combined 5 to 1. Yet, it is one of the hardest cats to see. They survive from deserts to rainforest to montane climates; they are the perfect study of adaptability and survival.  We are lucky that this island wonder, Sri Lanka, is home to one of 7 ...

Folks this is an article that had its beginnings sometime last year and has finally reached conclusion in 2011. September 2010 was the last time I visited Yala having made a decision to visit the park only during the dry season as that was the best time to see plenty of Leopard. Of course right through [...]

I had not visited Yala for a while and when my sister suggested we take the kids during their holidays I readily agreed. School holidays are not the best of time to visit Yala due to excessive crowds so I made a tactical decision to make the trip from 9th to 13th April hoping that most of the crowds would ...

Wilpattu 21st to 23rd August 2010. One week prior to the dates, Gehan called and asked me shall we go to Sinharaja? I jumped at the opportunity.  It’s been a while since Jackie and I last went to the rain forest and Martins place seemed the ideal place to escape from “work” for a few days.  This call was followed ...

Tuesday evening, I was just out of a mind numbing discussion. It was around 4 in the afternoon and I was looking out of the window, when my phone rang. Without looking at who it was I answered the phone. “Good evening…..I’m looking at the big tusker right now”. My mind snapped back into action, “big tusker”, and the time ...

Read Part I Read Part II Finally the day dawned and after an early breakfast, we stepped out into the freezing morning to head for base camp. A trek of a couple of hours in each direction, that takes you first up gradual climb and then along a ridge, not much wider than a car in most places, that runs ...

Read Part I The trek starts by climbing up through the town to reach the ridge and a spectacular view of the Valley behind, Mt Thamshakur looking over our shoulder and the town spread out like a colorful picnic cloth below us. Having taken our photo’s we started the trek along the valley towards Tengboche, famed for its Buddhist monastery. ...

In Tibet, it’s referred to as Chomolungma; the Mother Goddess of the Universe. In Nepal, it’s Sagarmatha; The Mother of the Ocean; such fitting names for an incredibly imposing, majestic piece of mother earth. So to think that it is most famous as Mt Everest; named after some gin sodden, toffee nosed, brit, ex Surveyor General of India is almost ...
