Photo and caption by Atsuya KOTODA
This photo was taken when I visited Natural Bridge with my family in April 2013. It was a cloudy day but suddenly the sun shone through and its rays were reflected by the spray of the waterfall and the emerald water. The dark cave was nicely illuminated for only about a minute. The unique waterfall plunges through a natural opening in the rocks. It is said that the geological feature was created over millions of years by water tumbling through the roof of the cave. The cave is known as one of Australia's largest glow worm colonies. You can see glow worms on the ceiling at night.
