17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Ice Cave Adventure

This photo was captured when I was on an ice cave adventure in Alaska, America. The cave was so dark that I could hardly see the path as I went deeper. Then when I suddenly looked back, my guide was holding his sunglasses as if he was an alien who lived in this cave for hundreds of years and was going to eliminate any creatures that ran into his territory. Without any doubt, I held my camera and recorded this intimidating but unforgettable moment.
