"The Natural Entrance"
October 2009, Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico
This image is shot from inside the caverns looking up and out to the natural entrance. A close look reveals stairs switchbacking their way down the blue light of the entrance. Above those switchbacks, unable to be seen here, is a series of perhaps another dozen steep switchbacks leading to the viewing area for the infamous bat flight.
