Sooo…. I have been into editing photos recently and I have edited A BUNCH which means I’m going to try to post one every two or so days just so they aren’t going to waste.😁 . So background of this photo… this is a cavern in Virginia. It used to be used as a ballroom for parties and a place where there people had their weddings like waaay back when. This particular picture is of part of the cavern they had lit up and you can see int the bottom right hand corner is a little reflective pool. Really cool experience being 200+ feet underground seeing the all the different formations and little caves. Fun fact- if a drop of water falls on you, it’s considered a cave kiss which means you have good luck for 7 years! . . #va #travel #virginia #grandcaverns
