Af­ter be­ing low­ered 60 me­tres into a huge hole in the In­done­sian jun­gle you make your way through slip­pery mud into this cav­ern, where at mid­day the sun­light pours in, cre­at­ing these amaz­ing rays of light. I set up the tri­pod and cam­era, framed the im­age and took test shots to check fo­cus and ex­po­sure – I had planned to cap­ture a selfie, and had bought a wire­less re­mote be­fore the trip. I locked things down, then scram­bled through the mud, climbed the rock col­umn un­der a shower of wa­ter, took a few shots and scram­bled back to check the cam­era. The light kept chang­ing so it was a bit of a crap­shoot, but it was worth the trou­ble in the end.­jhnsn Nikon D800e, Nikon AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR, 0.6 sec, f/5.6, ISO160
