Iconic Shot: The Bahamas

(Click to enlarge)
A fascinating piece in National Geographic last summer told the story of the mysterious blue holes found throughout the Bahama islands.  In this shot, a diver makes his way through a "stalagmite forest" beneath Abaco Island, in which one wrong move could decimate mineral formations formed over a thousand years ago.

National Geographic, along with its website, aren't simply informative. They're culturally important. Websites and periodicals will come and go over the next 100 years, but NG will still be around.
