Photographer's Note

Cenote (puits sacr) est un gouffre d'effondrement en milieu de terrains calcaires rempli d'eau douce s'il ne communique pas avec une grotte connect嶪 la mer.
Plusieurs grottes fournissent l'eau potable depuis 10,000 ans aux p幯insulaires du Yucatan o il n'y a pas de fleuve ni de cours d'eau en surface.
Remarquez le trou noir horizontal situ l'arri鋨e-sc鋝e de ce th殪tre am幯ag sur la pente menant au puits dans lequel il est possible de se baigner.

Mexico's Yuatan peninsula is relatively flat with no surface rivers or streams. However, below the ground run the three longest underground water systems in the world that have directed the distribution of human settlement for 10,000 years. A Cednote is a natural sink hole created where a cave ceiling of natural limestone has collapsed.
It's filled with freshwater if not connected to the sea by means of a cave. People can bathe in those 'sacred wells'
You can perceive at backstage of this natural theater the horizontal black hole of a Cenote.
