Caption: Cave passage. Silhouetted cave explorer in a cave passage that has formed in a circular shape due to phreatic action. This uniform erosion in all directions usually happens when a passage is eroded from the surrounding rock while remaining completely submerged. This passage is called 'Bakerloo Straight', and is located in the large Dan yr Ogof cave system of South Wales.
