Photographer's Note

Taken today. We were on our way back from Nelspruit in Mpumalnga and decided to stop off at the Sudwala caves. These caves were formed over 3000 million years ago, making them some of the oldest known caves. The main structure is made from dolomite rock and within the cave are sedimentary layers of rock, as you can see the layers in this photo. There are many stalagtites and stalagmites inside the caves, the oldest dated 200 million years old and still growing. The Swazi people used to use the caves as a hide out and many battles were fought at the mouth of the cave.
I set my camera on 1600iso and did not use flash, the light is from the lights that are in the cave.
