Rock of Ages | Carlsbad Caverns

Carlsbad Caverns National Park | New Mexico, USA


Unlike most of the pictures I've seen of Rock of Ages, I wanted this photo to also capture the area around it. I was fortunate to set up my tripod and shoot this 20-second exposure without getting any visitors in the shot, and I am pleased with the result.


This area of the Big Room in Carlsbad is breathtaking. To get a sense of scale, see the winding path and handrails in the lower right portion of the large on black or original view.
