"There's incredible backstory to this one; apparently they had to rappel down into that tunnel. This one just blows me away; it's just gorgeous imagery. The texture of the surface of the cement almost reminds me of photos of the slot canyons in Utah. The overall way the photographer worked with light and shadow ... it has everything going on." -- Alex Hillinger
