Ice formation in Ledenika cave near Vratcha (Bulgaria)
Local people say it's an image of the Virgin Mary. If it was in India, they would say it's a Shiva Lingam, like a similar formation in the Amarnath Cave in Kashmir.
Those are the best of the 1200 photos I took during an unforgettable 3-week trip in Bulgaria in May 2004, with my friend Susie. Some photos have been digitally converted to black-and-white.
