Amazing how some of the patterns seem to be melting upward and others downward. Nice to see this through your lens. We have caves in Arkansas, but I won't go in.
John Prior: Thanks Sherri, it was incredible inside these caves, huge spaces.
I'm always amazed at what nature has done in caves and this is really beautiful John.
John Prior: Thanks Brian
That's really something! Are those colours 'natural' or have you tweaked a little? And where are they?
John Prior: Hi Tom, these are the caves at Nerja, Costa del Sol, Spain. Discovered fifty years ago by local boys hunting bats, huge caverns like underground cathedrals, amazing, human remains found dating back 30,000 years. I have enhanced the natural colours a little, it was quite dark inside to preserve the primeval feel and no is flash allowed.

I must have meant "vertically". Too much blood in the coffee in my veins and too early in the morning...
