Photographer's Note

Singuanti's (Stephen Inguanti) earlier posting of the reflecting pond from Luray Caverns inspired me to visit the area a few weeks ago. Without a tripod, I set up my camera on a stone to take this image. The overexposed areas are those where the spotlights shone.

Luray Caverns are a large, celebrated commercial cave just west of Luray, Virginia, USA, which has drawn many visitors since its discovery in 1878. The underground cavern system is generously adorned with speleothems (columns, mud flows, stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone, mirrored pools, etc). The caverns are noted for the Great Stalacpipe Organ, a lithophone made from solenoid fired strikers that tap stalactites of various sizes to produce tones similar to those of xylophones, tuning forks, or bells.
