A cave accessible only for those with members of the West Virginia Association of Cave Studies on a trip for scientific/school purposes.

Formations and prismatic jointing in the ceiling of Turner Avenue, one of the upper level passages. Backlit with two strobes on wireless sync.

Large trunk passage ascending out of the main stream passage and up to McClung's Avenue. Each person had an M2B bulb and I filled with an M3B.

Larger trunk passage in an intersection of Turner Avenue and the Berry-Rutzen Trail.
Each person held an M2B bulb and I had an M3B.

Even BIGGER trunk passage in a connection between the main stream passage and the Berry-Rutzen Trail. Believe it or not, around the bend out of view of the photo the passage gets to less than a foot and a half high. Each person had an M3B bulb.

Looking down out of Turner Avenue into the Berry-Rutzen Trail.
Fill lit with an M3B and backlit with an M3B.

The only thing I could offer, is to suggest that the people in your images to try to turn their heads to the side, so they can easily be identified. Those should be hung on their wall, and it would be more meaningful to their grandkids if they could see a face, instead of the back of a helmet. I know the caves are the subject, but these are lifetime experiences that will always be with each of you throughout life.

Phenomenal captures.
Thanks to claustrophobia and an overactive imagination about things in the dark, I will probably never see such a place.
Many thanks for sharing your remarkable captures.
Very, very, very well done, sir!

Great work with the lighting, or lack thereof.


- I discovered I scream the same way whether I'm about to be devoured by a great white shark or if a piece of seaweed touches my foot.
