Drop by Drop

When we long for life without difficulties,
remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds
and diamonds are made under pressure.
~Peter Marshall

....and caves are made drop by little drop.
This cave we visited was truly magnificent.
I love to visit these underground worlds~
full of beautiful nature-made sculptures
perfect temperatures
the soothing sounds of dripping water.

I think that I could live in a cave.
At least part time.

I know what you mean by live in a cave, the temps are wonderful & so is your image!

Yes ma'am, the canvas is home & will be hung this weekend. I haven't thanked your or anything yet cuz I was going to post a thank you... but I DO truly thank you tremendously... You're so sweet! I think I'm going to do the same thing too, I'm curious to see which pic of mine the winner will choose! LoL!

Any cave I've been in in the UK has been cold lol though the sights from inside them have been breathtaking - just like your photo.

Mm, not sure about living in one (cold, wet) but they can be magical as your photo shows.

Caves truly are magnificent...but I couldn't live in one...perhaps I'm too claustraphobic;)

I am totally WOWED by the nature photos you are treating us all to and this one is as stunning as the others. You couldn't have asked for better lighting and as for living in a cave, I just hope that when you move there you still get the internet so that you can share your amazing photos and quotes with us! ;-)

What a neat photo! It's been so long since I've been in a cave; but I can see why it might be fun to live in one....at least every now and then!
