Cave Reflection

I'm not telling you where this fantastic cave is, because it's a secret. Texas, that's all I'll give ya. It's not open to the public either. It's one of my happy places. You need to do some serious caving when you're in it. Last time, I had to wade through water up to my armpits and squeeze through some really tiny spaces. It's one of the best things ever. It was probably not the smartest idea to bring one of my best lenses in here, seeing as to how I was crawling on my stomach, back, side, etc. But it was worth it because I got some pretty sweet images of ways back in The Cave. Wander over here for more reflection goodness.

Wow, beautiful and unusual cave reflection!

Deep within the bowels of the earth is as foreign as the deeps of he sea, isn't it.

Foreign but equally beautiful. It is a long time since I have been even tourist caving in easily accessible places. Shall have to rectify that this summer.

Awesome, no matter how much water or how many tight places I had to go through I would consider that one view worth it all. Great photo.

Very nice of course. We don't live too far from the Kartchner caves but we are not allowed to take any picture!

Fantastic shot, caves are such wonderful places but so hard to photograph, well done!

The shot is certainly worthy bringing in your best lens! There is a gorgeous cave with water just like that in Bermuda at one of the hotels. the water was freeeezing! :)

An amazing shot. And you can tell trust me with the location, because there is no way in heck you'd ever get this claustrophobic gal in a cave! Well done, thanks for showing me what I've been missing! Kathy

Really nice shot. I have been in a cave, a nice safe one with guided tours in Montana, called Lewis & Clark Caverns. Lewis & Clark never went there, though.
Thanks for sharing this hidden wonder.

Amazing! Isn't it a bit scary?! What a fabulous sight and I hope you and your lens made it back out in one piece! Amazing again...

thanks guys, i absolutely love love love this cave. the first year i was in it, this particular passage way was totally full of water b/c it had been a really rainy season ...and cave diving? NO! not for me! but this year, it was really dry (considering) so this route was ready to go. It opened up to a few pretty big rooms with awesome formations. So cool! my husband is 6'4 so it's a little goofy watching him in the cave!
