Photographer's Note

This a classic shot that I've seen more than once on TE, but I wanted to show my version and post a picture taken in Guilin. This part of the cave has artificial illumination which makes the staglatites and stalagmites form som curves that resemble the characteristic landscape of this area of China.

I sharpened and increased contrast.

"Located almost 6km (4 miles) northwest of Guilin city is the Reed Flute Cave which goes 240 meters (790ft) into the mountain. The name of the cave is derived from ludi cao (reed grass), which grows in front of the cave and is used to make flutes. The gras covered the entrance to the cave, so the people of the area used this cave for many centuries as a hideout in times of war.

The cave is filled with many bizarre stalactites and stalagmites and visitors will enjoy using their imagination to name and bring to life the many different shapes and forms. The cave is a part of the Reed Flute Park (ludi gongyuan) and visitors can join different walking tours that are conducted in Chinese. "
