Straw Curtain

This amazing curtain of straws is at the point where a large passage enters an even larger chamber in Cueva Llueva in Matienzo, Spain. This point is named the Edge of Darkness because of the size of the space beyond it appears black, providing the perfect backdrop to highlight the formations. What made it even more special was that we discovered this section of the cave in 2007 as part of the ongoing British organised expeditions to the area. I entered this picture in the photography competition at the UK caving conference Hidden Earth in 2008 and won best colour print in show.
