Very nice. This shot fits in with the category of the sun shining in through the window except, in this case the window is an opening in the rock. Great work.

Regarding Startrek, I read somewhere the phrase "Beam me up, Scotty" was never used in any episode of the original series. Many variations were used, of course, but never this specific phrase. For what it's worth.

Very nice. I like the reflection of the light against the walls, too.

Well, I'd never have guessed! My money was on illicit photoshopping, revealed, as I thought, by the strange top to the beam. I'm now ashamed of my suspicious nature.

We've touched on the ethics of smoke and handfuls of dust already in this 'challenge'. This wonderful shotis an excellent illustration. It's certainly produced a remarkable example of the phenomenon. With somewhat dubious things like this, I prefer to see it, rather than not see it, and let myself and everyone else decide whether it's ethical or not. Clearly there have to be limits on this, set by 'the management'!

To improve the shot, someone needs to dangle in a harness just out of shot to drop the dust down the hole. Then the ethical question arises of whether to tell the visitors, and if so, when.

P.S. Any chance of posting asmall hi-res enlargement ofjust the top of thevisible beam?

Thanks Curmudgeon for sharing the know how??? Never thought about it .That certain thing could be done in this manner too .Little bend of mind is required.Well I haven't thought about the PS work not even a sec.Still I apologise even if my post has some tone of it.My wife is very angry with me B'coz the mess I created at home to my thowing the somke near the window hole to recreate the same effect.But could not.My lungs are paining.

I love to see those beautiful slot canyons. I was close to one about five years ago but the weather was cloudy and wet and we were somewhat limited on time so bypassed the canyon.
