You truly are in a different world when you travel 800 feet below ground, into this mammoth cavern. It use to be our hang-out years ago, as we toured and performed in local towns around the area, such as Carlsbad, New Mexico. This trip was exclusively for shooting the cavern and seemed so different and surreal, then years ago. We had a new found respect for this amazing place. Photographs cannot truly capture how alive your senses are, when drifting through nature’s work of art. You lose perspective of time and space. In the main cavern, cool air currents flow by you at a constant 56 degrees. That’s pretty tolerable.
It’s hard to get a sense of distance and depth, but my guess is, the farthest wall in the photo is probably 200 feet in away.
