Nagaland is secluded and in many ways different

from the rest of India.  The landscape is surrounded

by mountains and inhabited by unique  wildlife.

The people, though, are welcoming and love to be

photographed  like people all over the India.

These are images from the  colorful  Horn-bill Festival.
