The weekend started with a 13.5hr trip into Blue Spring Cave, TN.

Brian Williams descends the pit into the lower level of the P-Survey. Lit with a strobe, two Number 22s, and an M3B.

One more - gypsum snowflake in the M-Survey.

I was very impressed by the Canon 10-22's ability to do "macro" shots. Sadly it has left me, I am now the owner of a 14-20. The lens got jarred (not gently either) and it jams at 14mm and 20mm. Oh well, time to get the 10-18!

Really nicely done. Loving the balanced remote lighting - everything looks very natural.

I will never do this cave exploring, but do appreciate the underground beauty and the images you have posted. The geologic formations and colors are great.
