Photographer's Note

This is Grand Caverns near Grottoes, Virginia. This is America's oldest show cave which has been open to the public since 1806. Walking around you can see evidence of it being open so long with a lot of stalactites broken off for souvenirs over the years. Of course that's illegal now but you can't put back the ones that were stolen. It's a very large cavern with one room alone around 280 feet long (86m) and over 70 feet high (21m). During the Civil War it was popular with soldiers for a place to escape the heat. There are markings from the soldiers in many spots. I have one or two more to post from here. Taken around 3pm.

Hand-held shot at 1000 ISO.
