dailymail.co.uk - Magic light in Sơn Đoòng cave

Illuminated by a beam of light, a solitary caver gazes at the looming rock face towering above him as he stands in the biggest limestone caves in the world.
American photographer Ryan Deboodt took the images in Vietnam's Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park, after travelling by plane and car before taking on treks of up to four hours through the jungle to reach the caves.
Mr Deboodt, 30, who now lives in Ho Chi Minh City, eventually managed to capture the dramatic images in the Hang En and Hang Son Doong caves.

He was accompanied by four members of the British Caving Research Association, who first helped explore Hang Son Doong.
 
They were lucky enough to capture the rare light phenomenon, which points into the centre of the images and only appears for an hour between 9.30am and 10.30am during January and February.
 
Mr Deboodt said: 'On the morning that I was there it was foggy and cloudy and it didn't look like it was going to happen.
 
'Everyone but me and another guy decided to start the 3 hour trek back to the road.
'You can imagine how excited I was when the fog and clouds began to clear.'
 
The caves were formed by huge quantities of water dissolving the limestone mountains. A small pool of water reveals the river, turned green from the dissolved minerals.
 
Powerful: Mr Deboodt said: 'It shows how powerful nature can be, carving out this huge cave in rock, and how tiny we humans really are in the scheme of things'
