If you love gazing at the Himalayas but find it tough to take out time to go visit the high altitude wetlands, then an ongoing exhibition in the city could give you an opportunity to do just that.

Organised by WWF-India, in partnership with Canon, the exhibition is a result of Framed, the online WWF-Canon Photography contest held in September. The contest is a reflection of WWF-India's commitment to conserve high altitude wetlands.

Framed had received an overwhelming number of responses from across the country. The photographs, shot by a varied group of nature enthusiasts, have been judged by a panel of experts - nature filmmaker Mike Pandey, editor Better Photography K. Madhavan Pillai and wildlife photographer, Mahesh Nair.

"Environmental conservation can operate through more ways than one, and photography is a fantastic medium to capture the admiration and concern of the masses in favour of conservation," says Ravi Singh, secretary general and CEO WWF-India.

The exhibition can be viewed at the Secretariat, WWF-India, 172 B, Lodhi Estate, till October 16.
