I spent the month of July out in India, (yes July when all the guide books say to avoid India). However it meant we got a real experience of what living in India is like. with a range of conditions from 49 degree heat in the desert to non stop downpours in the wettest place on earth. 
You really have to go to places like this with a very open mind, I had some amazing experiences and stunning views as well as sights I wish I could forget but that's the unfortunate reality of India.
I have tried to capture a selection of images that show the country as it is with a mix of stunning landscapes along with the hard hitting slums.
