great photo and caption - but I don't think so. Looks far too pleasant.
So where is it?

Great shot. 6 stars if the figures were naked.

Certainly different and well worth a 5!

Excellent, good viewpoint!

Hey, thanks for the kind comments!
pneame- The figures are looking into a section of the Llanberis slate quarries, called Mordor (actually it might be 'the lost world' area- I get the two mixed up). Either way, it is an impressively vast, man made hole in the ground.

I was wondering where that was. Can't believe it is the Slates. Really cool shot. a solid 5 stars for me.

I thought it was Snowdon/the pass in the background, but guess it was taken from the cave into California?

An opening in a tunnel that goes through into 'the lost world' from just above 'the khyber pass'. Well worth an explore.

That is superb! Well done in every way.
