At the southern slope of Khasi Hills in Meghalaya, India, Shella is a branch of Umiam river.
On the bank of the river, about 60 km from Cherrapunjee, this small village is also called Shella.
Shella is surrounded by orchards of orange, pineapple, jack fruit and areca nut.
No tourists, no chaos. The place is very peaceful and exquisitely beautiful.

Dear Alekhya, this is high quality picture perfectly taken showing an area of India I'd like to discover soon, dry season at the time of the capture, it's one of the most rainy place of the world, impressive bridge in the bg and lushy environment, bravo, thanks for your support, see you!

A peaceful location and very picturesque landscape with the pristine river grabs attention guiding the eye to explore deeper. This works brilliantly with great sense of perspective, depth and viewpoint, nice colours and the bg blue adds a heap of punch to this shot. A pleasant enough shot nicely taken. Congrats

una bella visione del nord dai caratteristici caratteri alpini: il verde abbraccia le rive del fiume e risale lungo la gola, il greto del torrente ricorda la preesenza della corrente sicuramente impetuosa nella stagione delle piogge anche se qui tutto appare tranquillo e la quiete del luogo invita alla meditazione.
Una bella cattura.
Ciao e buona serata
