Ok, the video will be on YouTube shortly, finalizing it now, but here are the fruits of the trip (FYI: The video was taken with an SX30 and my headlamp, yes really):

Me near a nice bacon. Canon T3i with a 10-22mm lens. Back flash and one side flash. This required going through a 12in crack to get to. Other places had a 9in squeeze for roughly 15ft, I did not even try. Maybe on the next trip.

Elliot near some helectites and knobby popcorn formations. Back flash and side flash.

A favorite from the trip, Left to right, Elliot, me, and Andrew in one of the wide trunk passages. This is in the video, I sprinted down the passage during the 10s timer and we had a roughly 5s exposure to set off our flashes, one from each person. I really like this one.

BAM! Crawl out of a 12in crack and look up into THIS. 6sec exposure using a Zebra Light on the ground to catch the waterfall. Backflash behind Elliot. Probably one of my best photos EVER (including Yellowstone, Alaska, Hawaii, etc)

Andrew near formations in the entrance passage. One back flash, any fill lighting was reflections from the fog, formations, etc.

Video soon.

C&C welcome on any aspects, lighting, comp, etc...

Really nice cave shots. The choice of lighting is excellent.
