the hall of the giants

WonderlandGlass

Mansfield, United States

Artist's Description

One of the largest chambers within the cavern system of Luray, Virginia this chamber is called ‘Giants Hall’
Shot with the existing lights within the cavern, hand-held and straight from the box:Nikon P80;5mm;f2.8;1/6 second;ISO 400
The lighting within the caverns adds a degree of challenge to capturing images with the existing light, washing out some details but adding interesting shadows.
Luray Caverns are the largest caverns in the eastern USA and a National Landmark. Some of the most spectacular creations were formed just one drip at at time, such as Giant’s Hall, vast expansive chambers decorated by predominately golden columns, 10-stories tall. The gold colors come from iron and clay soils seeping from the ground along with the calcium carbonate “drips.”
Just some of Luray’s other impressive formations include:
Titania’s Veil — primarily all white, and formed by pure crystalline drips
Frozen Fountain — a massive, somewhat rounded white flowstone
Empress Column — a golden column is formed when a stalactite and stalagmite meet. This one is huge!
