19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Cave full of bats

One of those photos that look amazing but was very challenging to take. Inside the cave was a lot of smoke from burning coconut and also extreme heat, not considering thousands of bats sleeping at the walls and millions of cockroaches! But in the end I had some visions and took some amazing shot there ( after session I had a headache all day long ). One of the cave in Lombok island ( btw on the walls there are not stones but sitting bats).
