In the Clear

From his vantage point, Mohnish Bisht was able to capture the stunning clarity of the Umngot River in Meghalaya, a state in India. Meghalaya’s capital city, Shillong—with its temperate climate and hilly, pine-covered landscape—has earned the European nickname “Scotland of the East.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our storytelling community where members can take part in photo assignments, get expert feedback, be published, and more.
