Returning to Santiago

As I told you before, I'm working some days each week in Quillota, a city near Santiago. I took this picture at the entrance of La Calavera (The Skull) tunnel on my way back today. I really don't know the origin of the tunnel's name, but it doesn't sound very encouraging when you're going in... It was built in 1950 and is 298 meters long.
I chose this picture because I liked the "speed effect" around the entrance. It kind of gets you dizzy...

J'aime beaucoup l'effet que tu as donné à ta photo, on a vraiment une impression de vitesse et que l'on va s'engouffrer dans le tunnel.

I like much the effect that you gave to your photograph, one is really an impression speed and that one will engulf oneself in the tunnel.

Just in case: I didn't add a "speed effect". Ooops...

Great perspective in this shot. The eye is drawn into the "skull"

Could the nickname have arisen as a result of the international comic strip hero of that era, The Phantom, who lived in the Scull Cave? Only a wild guess though.
