Post-Processing: Some cropping and adjustment to brightness and contrast.       Extra Info: The aperture in the rock was made in the 1st Century AD to make a passage for the aqueduct which brought fresh water to the Roman town of Divona in south-west France. Cut by hammer and chisel!

    Wow love the location. It would be better if the hole isn't overexposed or if you chose a different time of day.

    I'm always amazed at what was accomplished centuries ago without the use of our modern equipment. It's hard to get an idea of scale.

    Amazing what people used to do with simplest of tool (and lots of sweat). How big is that opening, I wonder.

    The brightness of the light through the hole in the rock is a bit distracting. Not sure what you could have done about it though. Good find!
