I am late this week, but here is my entry for this weeks photo challenge “inside.” These photos are inside Harrison’s Cave in Barbados. The caves were first mentioned in historical documents in 1795.For almost 200 years they were forgotten until in 1976 two spelunkers, Ole Sorensen, and Tony Mason re-discovered them. They opened as a tourist attraction in 1981. The caves are naturally formed by water erosion through the limestone rock. The calcium-rich water that runs through the caves have formed the unusual stalactite and stalagmite formations.

  1. Kind or reminds me of that movie Predator. Great pic, but a little grotesque (the subject, that is)
