Very rarely do I consider one of my photos to be "frame-worthy". This one however....

ISO 800, f6.7. Canon T3i using a 10-22mm lens. Model was backlit by an M3B bulb. The wall was lit from behind the bank with two synced strobes. The strobes only produce a fourth of the light the bulb does. The formations were so *white* that they did not need much light to be lit up. In fact they bounced the light and lit the model and the whole passage. One of my favorites.

ISO 800, f5.6. Canon T3i using a 10-22mm lens. Model backlit with two strobes. The formation area itself was lit by bouncing an M2B bulb off the opposite wall for even and soft lighting.

Yours truly at the Snuffaluffagus Formation. Backlit with an M2B and fill lit with an M2. Given the backlighting bulb was a blue tinted one it produced the blue coloring on the walls....

SX30IS, T3i, 18-55 IS II, 55-250 IS... life is good.

Amazing to think that all those beautiful things are in the dark but for your bulbs...
