    Beautiful shot John, it IS a jungle out there

  • It certainly is, at least in the wet season

    natural framing, love it, also the reflections are pretty cool, excellent capture

  • Thanks Ersu, I had to get Mr Ong on the raft to pole back and forward a few times….

    And such a jungle! Excellent shot, John; great composition, & the subject matter ain’t bad either!

  • Thanks Sheila, easy to take this shot as it is just a short walk from home. This is the entrance that 300,000 cave adapted swifts fly into every twilight to cling to the cave ceiling for the night..and the bats leave for nocturnal hunting

    love this John, always liked when you emerged into the light when bamboo rafting throughout Tham Lod

  • It is a great way to re-enter the outside world
