The Dauki river in Jaflong is around 25 km away from Sylhet city. The place is known as stone collector’s river, where huge amount of stones are collected every day. One can see the Indian Territory Meghalaya (Cherapunji) located just behind the hills. I went to Jaflong in November 2012 to catch the beauty and essence of nature with my camera. It had been raining continuously over three days, so I had to take the landscape in the rain. It was an awesome experience to shoot in rain that I have never done before.
