Set photo from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES reveal hints about the plot?

I know that some wish to go into RISES dark, so to speak. So, if that's you, I'd stop reading

Curiosity got the best of you, eh?

An anonymous source in India got close to the set of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (which began production today) and managed to capture something quite interesting. Holes in the ground! Holes filled with a green as bright as Batman's emerald superbrother from another DC mother! The green of course being green screen and those holes possibly being what some have hypothesized as a Lazarus Pit. Fans have already taken to the Twitter and the message boards claiming that this story line doesn't pass through Nolan's Bat-filter of a more grounded comic book reality but I'm with HitFix's Drew McWeeny on this, who said "If you really think Nolan is too realistic for Lazarus pits, you didn't see THE PRESTIGE."

For those of you not familiar with the Batman mythos, the Lazarus is a fountain of youth so to speak, tied directly into the Ra's al Ghul story arc (a character which Nolan obviously did his own take on with BATMAN BEGINS). So, what does this mean in terms of plot points for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES? I haven't a damn clue. It could just be an entrance to the new Batcave. Or Bruce Wayne's JELL-O hot tub.

If you're scratching your head right now, questioning "That's it?" I know, I know. It's more about the conversation the photo evokes rather than the photo itself.
