Majlis al Jinn cave. Caver standing in a shaft of sunlight from one of the entrances to Majlis al Jinn, one of the largest cave chambers in the world. This limestone cave is located on Oman's Selma Plateau. Entrance is through holes in the ceiling, with a drop of around 120 metres to the cave floor. The cave's name refers to local customs that the cave is a meeting place of spiritual creatures called jinns (genies). Photographed in 2010.
