    To visit ice caves like this make me feel humble. It is like life - it's here and in the next moment it's gone. Ice caves are silent witness of life. And maybe next year there gone - like us human. You never know the end of life - enjoy. To be able to think these thoughts - that's a gift for me.

    Interesting subject. I have paused on this photograph, not because it is a familiar location to me, but because a lonesome dog is stood on the same rock I would have asked one of my companions to stand on! How interesting and how unusual. I love it because as well as the cave being perfectly illuminated and framed, it has an added and unusual mysterious feel to it due to the connection we (the viewer) has with the dog through it's eyes. A real kaninie adventure!
