Scenes from the Underground

I am exploring the notion of the underground, the lure of exploration and the difference of the man made and the natural.

 

Scene1_EndlessField:

A seemingly endless field, no entrance nor exit visible. Sensation of being trapped, yet a vast landscape surrounds you. The columns suggest the weight of the ceiling and the claustrophobia increases.
