Photographer's Note

One moment in the queue for tickets!

The Jeita Grotto is a system of two separate, but interconnected, karstic limestone caves spanning an overall length of nearly 9 kilometres. The caves are situated in the Nahr al-Kalb valley within the locality of Jeita, 18 kilometres north of the Lebanese capital Beirut. Though inhabited in prehistoric times, the lower cave was not rediscovered until 1836 by Reverend William Thomson; it can only be visited by boat since it channels an underground river that provides fresh drinking water to more than a million Lebanese.

One of 28 finalist for New 7 Wonders of Nature!

Thanks Leo. Backround should be overexposed (at least how I saw!) - to make as large as possible contrast to this wonderful eyes! Actually, the background is something that is to be removed from these pictures!
