Look I am no angel but like the previous poster I must draw attention to those muddy boots etc on the stal. I would ask that the moderators edit out any images that do not comply with conservation as clearly this one does not. I cant say that its even nicely composed so I am surprised that it got any likes. Perhaps folk were looking at the bum

I'm sure the model will be pleased to read that final comment. And 'draw attention'? 'Comply with conservation'? Who are you, the stalactite police? We cleaned everything down afterwards, not that there was anything to worry about.

Cleaning down is not acceptable as damage during that process can occur. The photo was wrong in the first place.

So you are the Stalactite Police then? Get real.
Dont be childish. I say what I see. Its my opinion after 60 years of caving. The model would have looked better in profile off to one side not plonked back to camera in the middle of it all. Dont lets get personal. Its a reasonable debate.

Er. Technical details for the er umm bat perch. Hand held two Skyray torches together. One has a long focus the other more wide angle. Plus Scurion main beam. The other hand TG 6 on Programme so flash fired. I working trip with just two of us so no model. The whole photo took a few seconds though I took three to be sure.

Last Bonfire weekend Mel, myself and George headed underground on a trip that would result in a 54hr rescue. I'm happy to report that this time, getting the gang back together, went somewhat more smoothly on our anniversary trip in to Ogof Ffynnon Ddu!
