We have a few group shots though they are on other peoples cameras, I will get the posted on here in due course.

The first image here is a 'group of 2' SUSS in Time Machine, Daren Cilau (I cropped Mr. NUCC out on the left ;)). Though there is the third, mysterious figure in the cave.
Now I'm not saying the subject of the next shot runs SUSS, but I feel that a triplicate shot best represents his presence within the committee and culture. So it's a group shot of the same guy.
Whilst the second shot is not caving, it is 'Underground in Sheffield', about as us as you can get, though for legal reasons I am unable disclose the location...

I'm not sure if this is a compliment or insult, but I do get about a bit :-\ :-\ :-\

Nice photos. I'm looking forward to more entries!

I hope you don't mind that I've embedded the images into the posts. It just makes life easier for forum users wanting to see them.

ULSA group photo #1

this isn't so much a photo as a work of art, but with 4 more photos possible to be entered I'm willing to take the hit. I've heard a number of possible interpretations of it, including:

'It's an Araneus diadematus, spinning a web of arseholes'
'It is a web of deceit'
'all the people who are connected have slept with each other including Mr cat'
'It is a microcosm for a world in which people think they are free. The worst kind of prison is one where you can't see the bars...'

Credit for the image must go to Mr Scott QC MSc PhD.
the man is mentally ill. I have seen him eat a plastic pie.

ULSA entry #2. Nathan, CSJ, Metcalf, Nathanael, Sarah, Kristian, Wob and Luke from ULSA enjoying chips outside Guscott Pot with Chris Fox (BSD), Alex Ritchie, John Proctor, and the American Guy (BRCC). Photo credit: Nick Bairstow.

Whilst this photo may not have been taken by a member of ULSA, I feel like it captures the spirit of caving very well: a group of people who would otherwise probably not know each other are all having fun together, regardless of whether they have a club or not.

Here are MUSCs entries for the photograph competition. I think they might need a little explaining though...

Photo 1) "Make love not war"
A great action shot of our annual suspended sock wrestling competition 

Photo 2) "Usual suspects"
A MUSC trip to [censored] where we were totally supposed to be

Photo 3) "Battle paint"
MUSC after a trip to Notts 2 involving various mud fights

Photo 4) "My precious"
A rare photograph captured of a wild Sahil (MUSCs president) in his natural habitat, caught after his long trip to retrieve a well earned bottle of whisky.

Photo 5) "MUSC goes to church"
MUSC was contacted by a local church to investigate their underground tunnels, which totally didn't turn out to be their foundations...
