📷 @shonephoto "A few months ago I was invited to join a five-person team of explorers and scientists and spend a week camped underground inside arguably the prettiest and most decorated cave ever discovered. For almost twenty years I've dreamed of taking my camera inside Lechuguilla in Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico. Finally, in January/February this year, I got that chance and now I'm excited to share the photographs with you all.
Located in the southwestern branch of Lechuguilla and just around the corner from the Big Sky camp where we were sleeping, lies another beautiful part of the cave. Known as Pearlsian Gulf and named after several nests of pristine white cave pearls, this idyllic paradise is one of the most iconic landmarks in the cave. A small pool of turquoise water surrounded by yellow and white speleothem formations is another sampling site for microbiologist Prof. Hazel Barton. Upon entering the site, we were told to change into clean clothes and wear a brand new pair of non-marking sole pumps to walk around. It was vital we didn’t leave behind any signs of us being there.

Spent a couple hours working from an office with this view. Looking to this city I both love and hate, the city that gets me energised and excited to see and explore and do more, so much more❤️
When I was a little girl, everything in the world fell into either of these two categories: wrong or right. Black or white. Now that I am an adult, I have put childish things aside and now I know that some things fall into wrong and some things fall into right. Some things are categorized as black and some things are categorized as white. But most things in the world aren't either! Most things in the world aren't black, aren't white, aren't wrong, aren't right, but most of everything is just different. And now I know that there's nothing wrong with different, and that we can let things be different, we don't have to try and make them black or white, we can just let them be grey. And when I was a child, I thought that God was the God who only saw black and white. Now that I am no longer a child, I can see, that God is the God who can see the black and the white and the grey, too, and He dances on the grey! Grey is okay. - C.
