Show "Caves"

Discussion in 'Scenic, Architecture, and Travel' started by PeterB666, Apr 5, 2011.

  1. Thought I would start a thread on caves. Last weekend, I organised a private photographic tour of Jenolan Caves, about 100 miles west of Sydney.

    These shots were taken with my Olympus E-P1 and Panasonic 20mm f/1.7. I used autofocus (no trouble focussing in the low light). The advantage of the private photo tour was that we could use tripods. Other shots from the public tours were hand-held as tripods were not permitted. No flash shots here.

    I am very impressed with these shots. In retrospect, I have no idea why I shot at such a high ISO when using a tripod (actually I do know, I forgot to check the ISO) but even so, I only lowered it to ISO800.

    If you have some cave shots, please add them.

    Wow! Both of you have done beautifully - with digital and film!

    I haven't been inside a cave since I left West Virginia. Not implying that WVa is cavelike, but there was a really cool one not far from where we lived..and easy to enter and not feel claustrophobic.

    P.S. Peter thanks for sharing the bit about not checking the ISO. I did that on Sunday.:redface:
