Fairy Cave (Czech Switzerland)

3rd place
Normally this place is quite boring rock overhang in the Northern Bohemia (an area called The Czech Switzerland). Once in a couple of years melting snow creates a spring leaking down the cave. Even more rarely there are such conditions that the water creates such a beatiful icy scenery. Completely natural except for a small candle in the background.

Notes: An oldie but still my favourite picture of the genre. Three shots stitched to a moderate panorama. I used different exposure for each shot and blended them making it slightly HDR style, hope it's fine.
