D uring the first full moon of November, India’s Pushkar Fair, Asia’s largest camel and livestock market springs to life in the sleepy, picturesque, lakeside town of Pushkar. An ancient religious town, in the Thar desert of Rajasthan, provides an almost surreal backdrop for this unique event. Photographing the Pushkar Fair is a once-in-a-lifetime event. Few photo opportunities can match the volume or diversity of image possibilities.

The Pushkar Fair is, in itself, enough to justify a photo expedition, but on my annual Jim Cline Photo Tours Pushkar trip we also visit other fascinating destinations such as Delhi, Jaisalmer, Jaipur and Jodhpur.

We began this year’s tour, as we always do, in Delhi, the heartbeat of Northern India taking time to explore ancient forts, wander the markets, and experience the history surrounding both the old and new sections of the city. Here are 32  images from our first day….
