17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
end of the tunnel

i have a small fear of being trapped in places, big or small i just dont like to feel trapped, when my friend suggested we go explore some caves and lava tubes i was hesitant but i have always pushed past my fear and so i agreed. this shot is after spending a few hours underground with flash lights being our only salvation. as we exited and got closer to the light at the end of the tunnel i could feel an abundance of relief and excitement that i had pushed myself past my fear.
