Beautiful ! I can't believe no L lenses used so much for the thread "Is owning a Canon Rebel a joke"
Viewing these photos sort like going through a National Geographic magazine.

Canon Rebel T3i, granted most used the 10-22mm lens (A GOOD LENS), but some used the 18-55 (FIRST version) kit lens.

You dont need much in a cave, it is the lighting that does it!

I think they're even better than NG. Ryan, these are OUTSTANDING! And the text and limited story make the post even better. Well done!

Thanks! Yes, it is a unique challenge all it's own. Here is an excerpt from my trip report for Rehoboth Church about a high flowstone climb I did. I am going back (at somepoint) to do it with vertical gear and to photograph it:

The climbing lead is at the end of the wet crawls in which the photo of Cassandra near the column was taken. Andrew, being the climber that he was began up the muddy lower part of the climb. The dome wrapped around itself to the right, climbing nearly 50ft. Around the bend, we rigged a handline, then we realized we were only halfway up. Clean, unmarked, tan and pink flowstone stretched another 30ft above us. Above it, columns, flowstone, and draperies soared over our heads. From the ceiling, to the base of the dome, it had to be well over 100ft. I would place an estimate at 110-125ft. The formations were every color, whites, pinks, reds, yellows. Rimstone dams and sparkling calcite strewn about all over. It was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen (competing with Yellowstone, Hawaii, Alaska...). The density of the formations reminded me of a place in the famous Lechuguilla Cave. As far as I knew, this room was not named. To me, it would always be known as, "Nirvana".

So.... I obviously have work to do lol

How do you haul your gear? That's a pretty tough environment just to move around in, let alone haul sensitive equipment with you.

Camera is in a waterproof, padded pelican case. Everything else a soft padded waterproof case. The camera is in a plastic bag so I can handle it without getting ti messy and the same for the flashes. The tripod a cheapo from WalMart

A large cave bacon formation in Elkhorn with Gabe. One flash at the bottom of the bacon and one in the stalagmites at the right.

Really like this one, thinking JurassicPark amber mining :P
And as above, the one before this stands out, as do some of the 1st posts silhouette images.
The 2nd image reminds me of tomb raider style pose :)
