Whinstone, as in the Great Whin Sill is an intrusive dolerite, the deeper version of basalt. However, this may be a local name for very hard rock rather than an indication of its geological nature?

My last attempt with a DSLR was a bit of a disaster. Drowned it on a trip to the minarets, because I squeezed it into a slightly too small peli case and/or trapped the lanyard in the seal. Sold on ebay for parts.

Two years on, new peli case for xmas and a new to me secondhand 600D, we had another go and risked it down Sunset Hole on Tuesday :

Oh no. I've just done an 'interview' for someones photography A level and when asked what the most important piece of equipment unique to cave photography was I actually answered what you transport your kit in.

Great photos. I do like Sunset hole. Pegasus and I had a play at a pitch shot there a couple of years ago with me tandeming on the line.

As I haven't taken my camera underground for a couple of months, took it this weekend for a play in South Wales.

Jonathan's Chamber, Withyhill Cave. I discovered it when my son Jonathan was one. He is 50 now.

Upper part of the large chamber at the end of the east branch of Withyhill Cave. Pete Rose and I banged our way into this but never named it. Its off normal tourists routes but we were collecting a steel bar left there some 40 years ago. I cant remember why.
