Advent Abstract

I took this shot last week about 20 miles from our home in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. I was surprised that the photo turned out. I loved the vivid holiday colors that created an abstract look.

Can you guess where this shot was taken? There are clues if you look closely.

    1. Congratulations, Marie-Helene! This photo was taken in a cave, but not the Shenandoah Caverns. We attended a Christmas caroling fundraiser in the Grand Caverns in Grottoes, VA. They had holiday lights and candles throughout the tour, and this particular spot had a water pool, which created the reflections. Well done!


    1. Thanks, Melodie. They hold this fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Grottoes every year. We heard Cantore. It was great. They have one the next two Saturdays, but they only take three tours of 50 people. So, if you are interested, check the Grand Caverns’ website to see if they still have openings.
