Tiger, Chiang Mai

Photograph by Patrice Carlton

This Month in Photo of the Day: Traveler Contest Images

I will never forget the opportunity I had to be up close and personal with a tiger in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I love this shot because you really get the sense that you can touch him as his nose comes sharply into focus and the rest of him softly blurs out of focus. Almost surreal.
