30 Artistic Ceilings From Around the World

Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling.

Ceilings are the closest mankind has come to imitating the natural dome of the world - the skies. We look up wanting to see beauty above us, unattained and etheral, yet soothing and wondrous. These ceilings from all over the world make me want to visit these places, so I can gaze in captivated amazement and the artful ideas expressed there. These are truly inspired.

Rainbow Ice Caves In Russia

Remote ice caves appear in a kaleidoscope of colors in these stunning shots. Denis Budkov, 35, trekked inside the dangerous caves - which could collapse at any moment - to capture the colorful scenes. The rainbow caves are given their various colors by light refracting through the ice - with the thicker the ice, the more emerald they appear. And Denis, from Kamchatka, in the Russian Far East, also decided to add his own take - by lighting flares to turn the normally blue hues into dark reds. (Denis Budkov/ Caters News Agency)
