Front page of my local paper!
Really chuffed with this; I never expected my image to go on the front page!
The main shot was taken with my 5DIII and a 15mm fisheye - that cavern was really snug with 16 people in it (I estimated max 12 on the reccie) and the spray was horrendous.
Inside page was taken with my trusty X30 which did really well in the challenging conditions.
My local festival has strong ties with nearby caves and the caving community, so we came up with a mad idea to take as many organisers as possible underground and photograph them next to the festival banner.
En-route to the banner shot we took a break where a band played and we enjoyed a tipple of local cider.
This isn't a show-cave!
Getting the banner, instruments, cider, photographic kit and safety gear down there was a major undertaking.
Entrance to the banner chamber is a small hole at the top of the waterfall; it is quite intimidating.
Although we only went a relatively small way into the 9km cave system, it was more than enough for members of the group on their first trip underground.
