    At first glance, they could be twin asteroids. Very interesting effect.

    Very nice Steven. Underground photography is very difficult due to the lighting challenges.

    I take your title as a reference to Leonard Cohen, Anthem, which seems appropriate to the moment:

    The birds they sang
    at the break of day
    Start again
    I heard them say
    Don’t dwell on what
    has passed away
    or what is yet to be.
    Ah the wars they will
    be fought again
    The holy dove
    She will be caught again
    bought and sold
    and bought again
    the dove is never free.

    Ring the bells that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack in everything
    That’s how the light gets in.

  4. @gVOR08: I was hoping someone would get the reference. 🙂
