Photographer Gives Us an Inside Look at Meghalaya, India, ‘The Wettest Place On Earth’


New Zealand-based photographer Amos Chapple is a name you might recognize from his intimate look inside Iran that we shared just over a year ago. Today, he’s back on PetaPixel with a series of stunning images from Meghalaya, India — a village known as ‘the wettest place on Earth.’


In case you’re wondering, that statement is no exaggeration: on average, Meghalaya receives 467 inches of rain per year. And while this makes it a miserable photography location for many reasons, it also makes it one of the most unique places you could possibly shoot.

In order to combat the constant downpours, the laborers of the village wear knups, which are umbrella-type hats made from bamboo and banana leaves that keep the rain from drenching them as they go about their daily routines:


Another intriguing characteristic of the Meghalaya community is the use of natural bridges. By ‘training’ the roots and branches of trees, villagers have created a vast infrastructure of living bridges that span rivers and more.

As time goes on, these roots continue to develop and grow stronger, making the bridge itself even sturdier… no maintenance required.


Chapple captures the essence of Meghalaya in an almost cinematic manner, portraying the rain-soaked day-to-day life of the village’s inhabitants in a truly enchanting set of photographs:















To keep up with Chapple’s work, check out our previous coverage and then head on over to Facebook and give his page a like.

Wildlife Wednesday: Silhouettes

by Arnold Chao

In this week’s photo selection, we’re highlighting a spectacular picture of starlings flying in murmuration and over a dozen more exceptional shots of wildlife in their natural settings.

Murmuration and West Pier
Alan MacKenzieMurmuration and West Pier

“In February, starling murmurations gather around Brighton Pier about an hour before sunset. This means photographers miss the best lighting conditions. Use of background objects and side-lighting overcomes this late winter limitation.” – Alan MacKenzie

Mountain bluebirds silhouetted by moon Seedskadee NWR
“Mountain bluebirds migrate through Seedskadee NWR in large numbers during spring and fall migration. Many stay to nest as well. These two were some of the first spotted during spring migration.” – Tom Koerner/USFWS

“With so much light bouncing off the water, it was a good chance to try some silhouettes pictures, and these Herons made some wonderful shapes when they chased each other around the lake.” – Edd Cottell

“Several bull elk jostle for position to try to win favor with several cow elk above treeline in Rocky Mountain National Park.”

“The scene was chaos as the females tried to stay together while the males tried to separate them and chase each other away. Near the highest point in the road at an elevation of approximately 12,000 feet, the air was thin and we were all gasping for breath as the drama played out. The stalemate continued as the group disappeared over the ridge, into the sunset.” – Jeff Sullivan

“Green heron hanging from a branch in the heavy shade that had just stretched down to get a drink of water, leaving a trail of water drops and their reflections as it lifted up to swallow.” – Jim Russell

“Bako National Park, Sarawak, Malaysia. I found photographing in the rainforest very challenging, because the light from sun was often greatly dimmed by the canopy. To get a better exposure of the mantis, I played with my flash for a while, but the results weren’t satisfying. In the end, I created this silhouette by keeping the mantis in the shadows and exposing on some sunlit leaves in the background.” – Simon Jan
