This is Eva standing at the entrance of one of the Bronson Caves in Griffith Park. Anyone who has watched movies over the past several years has sen the Bronson Caves. They are used as the backdrop almost every time a movie or TV show needs a cave entrance. It was the famous opening out of which Batman drove his Batmobile. Even today a little film crew was up there making a low-budget movie. I had to ask them to move some of their props away from the entrance to get this shot. Fortunately, they were very obliging.

Hi Strad,
I`m beginning to dread you posting as yet again its another fantasic picture. The light is just superb. I love the composition and that bird being there is almost to good to be true.
Id say best of luck but i dont think youll need it
Take care and make a poster of this shot.
Mark

Nicely done. I love the subtle colors. Good thing no one had the Bat Signal up.

Thanks so much, Mark! I really appreciate your kind words and am so glad you like this. "Dread"
eh? Yikes! I don't want to be dreaded. I just do what I can every week and hope for the best.

All best wishes,

Endre

Thanks, Danny! I'm delighted that you like it! Thanks, too, for the great link. Even I didn't know about all those movies although i remember stumbling into several of them while they were being filmed.

All the best,

Endre

Thanks, Tom! I'm happy you like it. The Batmobile was just behind me when I was shooting this.

All the best,

Outstanding shot Endre. Has given me an idea for a shot I've been meaning to take for some while now, although not for this week's theme.

Hello Endre,
This is just lovely. The light rays, the bird, the pose of your daughter, I don't know how you pull it all togther, it's amazing. Your work is superb. Thanks for the interesting history of the cave too. I remember it from the movies you've mentioned.

This almost doesn't look real! Are you sure you didn't take this on the set of Pan's Labyrinth?

Hello Endre,

Done it again! I don’t “dread” your entries but rather look forward to them so much I can hardly wait for you to post them! What an example to the rest of us! Also like the b&w version on the b&w board btw. Keep well, l&p, Andrew-Bede
