It’s like a perfect hike in the late fall with one very big twist. Professional diver/photographer Anatoly Beloshchin took these breathtaking photos in the cave in Cenote Angelita, Mexico. Here is his description of this bizarre and enchanting place:
“We are 30 meters deep, fresh water, then 60 meters deep – salty water and under me I see a river, island and fallen leaves… Actually, the river, which you can see, is a layer of hydrogen sulphide.”
