Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) – Deep underground in rural China lies one of the largest natural pits in the world. At over 500m (1650ft) deep, Miao Keng in Tian Xing is larger than the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and in complete darkness, proved to be an epic photographic mission. I am drawn to the challenges in photographing these amazing wonders of the underground world. I remember it took us over 2 hours to rappel to the floor of this giant vertical chasm and several days later a tiring 4 hours to climb back out.
I have recently curated a @NatGeo Your Shot assignment entitled ‘EPIC’ – Today this assignment will be published and after over 12,000 photographs submitted, you will all get to see the editors favourites.
