    We heard that many explorers have lost their way inside the cave of impenetrable mystery. As we entered, I watched my shadow dissolve into the surrounding darkness. With headlamps on, we moved forward & lit up the tunnel ahead. The cave flickered an orange glow & wormed its way into the mountain. It's general shape was ovoid; the walls smoothly curved & arched upward to a giant concave ceiling. Strange round stalactites protruded from a column. Ok, ok, this was just a pepper for dinner tonight.

    I love Your Shot photographer Rose Ungvari's comment: "There are so many illusions and interpretations to this - in one way this reminds me of the inside of an exotic flower, especially the seeds. As a mysterious cave, I especially like the grooves inside that create such fascinating patterns and look like rough terrain to have to walk over... the lighting is the key ingredient, it adds so many dimensions, as if someone was walking ahead with lamps to illuminate the trail ahead."
