i love how it shows the silhouette cause the person is so small, and the surroundings is beautiful

That is interesting, if you look at it just right, it looks like the light is breaking through water that is suspended above the person upside down.

Behind The Lens

The photo was taken in Indonesia in Jombang cave. Jomblang located in karst hills, passing through the central part of the island of Java in the West Java Province and is part of the cave system Gunung Kidul (Gunung Kidul in the translation from Java - the southern mountains). Underground river and rain water for more than a thousand years have formed a unique cave. As a result, the cave was named - Luweng Jomblang (Luweng translated from Javanese - well).
Only a few hours during the day there is the opportunity to observe the beautiful lighting in the cave.
I spent several hours in the cave before I could take this picture. This day was cloudy, so the sun was constantly hidden behind the clouds
This was shot on a Canon 5d Mark III with Carl Zeiss 21mm/2,8 + tripod
About the cave Jombang I heard many times, but only 5 times in Indonesia I was able to get to this place. This cave has an amazing atmosphere. All the details for this picture I thought about in advance
There is almost no post processing on this photo. I framed the picture and dulled the saturation and color a bit.
In my camera bag
I always try to take with myself a set of lenses: Canon 15mm/2,8, Carl Zeiss 21mm/2,8, Canon 85mm/1,2, Canon 70-200/2,8 and a spare camera. Such a compilation allows to cover almost all genres.
Try to carefully plan each of your journey. Choose the right time of the year, so that you can catch the best light and conditions for photography. Learn to wait for the right moment.
