Forest Life Living Root Bridges in Meghalaya are brilliantly innovative wonderful structures that are meticulously grown over a period of time and are among the most fascinating attractions in Meghalaya. On the 3rd day of our trip we planned to visit the Wahniangniur Living Root Bridge, near Rangthylliang Village. We were to be guided by none other than @morningstar_khongthaw_ . For those who don’t know MorninStar Khongthaw, he’s the living authority on Root Bridges and runs his modest Foundation dedicated to raising awareness and conservation of root bridges of Meghalaya. It was a hard trek, descending through thick ancient  forests, overrun by roots of giant trees, crossing multiple small streams and passing many a magical waterfall. Halfway through the trek we came across this ginormous tree, a relic of a glorious past, standing tall since centuries. Ofcourse we had to shoot this magnificent specimen and all three of us @shashankkhanna , @himadri_bhuyan and yours truly set about capturing our own compositions. This is my version and I’m dying to see the compositions and final images from the two maestros with me ! Just for scale look out for MorningStar half way up the tree … After what turned out to be a magical, most exclusive day, we made a small contribution to the Living Root Bridge Foundation, that is making sterling efforts in conserving our heritage and innovations of our great country. Through this post I urge all to visit the Facebook page of the foundation to learn more about the efforts of MorningStar and his team and the Foundation and to contribute in any possible way.  #divine forest #tree #treesofinstagram #treephotography #tree_magic #samyang14mm #nikontravel #picoftheday #photographers of india #forestphotography #ig.nature #sliktripods #treesphotography #teamslik #leaves #leafphotography #woodland #forest #forestmood #forestfocus #autumn #fallcolors #fall #autumnphotography #landcapephotography #newforest #newforestnpa @natgeotravel @nikonindiaofficial @treephotography @samyangindia #ig_tree_shotz #ig_trees
