This photo was taken in Suan Hin Pha Ngam, also known as the "Thai Kunming". Not so famous among western tourists, as far as I could notice, it's a 230-280 million year old limestone park, that reminds us of Kunming, in China.
The best way to visit this park is to go on a trek with one of their guides. They take us through caves and narrow passages through the rocks. In some places we need to crawl to pass and there are signs indicating the presence of snakes along the paths, but the park is really incredible and it has some really unique places.
This is one of the passages between the rocks!

What a great adventure ala Indiana Jones you had! must be tough and energy consuming trip but it's enchanting cave walk no doubt where you can enter from one end of the cave and come out at a different location and this shot looks quite difficult passage thru the gap between the rocks. Very good exposure as I am well aware how difficult it is to expose in these kinds of circumstances, there' a strong contrast of lighting there and not easy to get it right. I love the composition and feel you display it does have that little bit of wonder at where the path into the cave will take but the long roots focus the eye on that delightful section of shadowed rock and leads upwards to those brightly lit thick green foliage. Credit to you, in very tricky circumstances, the contrast of light and shadow are very effective. Very good work indeed, Congrats. TFS.

This must have been a hard picture to take with the light coming through the trees and the dark rocks but you managed very well. The elongated roots of the trees help give a fascinating perspective. A very unusual picture and a super one to post on TE. Not sure that I would be happy with the snakes!
Kind Regards, Ann

um detalhe da natureza nada fácil de fotografar devido às dificuldades da luz.gostei do resultado que apresenta o contraste de áreas de luz e sombras e as linhas das raízes desta árvore.
