Walking light in the Luxmore Caves
by Marcus Schiedung, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
The Luxmore Caves are right below Mt. Luxmore in the Fiordland National Park, New Zealand. They are part of the Kepler Track which is one of the most famous Great Walks in New Zealand and starts at the Lake Te Ana Au (Māori for "cave of rain") 60 km to Lake Manapouri (in Māori Roto Ua for "where rain is constant"). The caves are famous for its curtain or shawl formations which appear here above the glowing headlamp. I took this photo spontaneously while I was exploring the cave and another explorer came up from deeper parts of the cave with his headlamp on. Now you just see him like a ghost walking through the cave.
