(Photograph by Achintya Guchhait)

Your Shot community member Achintya Guchhait captured this photo of brave “travelers and locals taking shelter under a huge rock [that’s been] stuck for ages in Mahabalipuram, India.” The rock, perched in a gravity-defying position on the edge of a hill, is nicknamed Krishna’s Butter Ball. Scientists believe it was likely placed by ancient glacial activity; however, legend has it that Lord Krishna, a fan of butter, dropped it where it sits.
