Re: Oly goes caving

Thanks for the kind words

I'm not brave, just careful and Yes Barr1e after 24 years I guess I know something about what I'm doing so many things don't cause a massive adrenaline rush. When I was Young and foolish I used to treat caves like some form of underground Gym, but now I love the science and am happier to take a few moments to fully understand my surroundings.

I have to admit that these pictures are nothing special in cave photography terms and that I need to upgrade my equipment for mulit flash systems to do better.

If you're interested by the topic at all then look out "To Photograph Darkness" by Chris Howes which is not only the best book on Cave Photography out there, but is also almost THE definitive book on Flash Use in an extreme environment it's still available some places...
Amazon Amazon

Also for a none photographic view of the world of caves and some real "Fine Artists" you can take a look at and the article I wrote over there
