Hi Tom. I dont really know what I am talking about. My image tells a story mostly relating to the caves evolution and its response to climate change. Re the pillar. Its pinker than it looks in the photo. That due to a combination or singular amount of minerals dissolved within the normally white calcite. I guess pink is a fairly rare cave formation colour though I know one thats almost lilac and there are black ones in Reservoir Hole. The calcite infill in the dried mud cracks is pretty rare and of course very fragile. That shows a progression over thousands of years in the caves development.

A formulaic photo of a pillar formed by erosion around chert bands. Boho Caves in Northern Ireland. Wet as the cave had flooded to the roof a couple of days earlier.

A Man On The Edge,

I have a thing about edges.

This one is a reflection of an edge. This is as it was taken not an edited manipulation. Very hard to get right as you dont see whats on the camera screen. The lens has to be exactly in the right place. Half underwater half above and maybe tilted a fraction. Its really down to luck.



The Crystal Edge.

Side light shining under the shelf.



The Curtain Edge.

Not as tight as I meant it to be but I liked the colour variations.



Sometimes you really dont need people in the shot. Great care has to be taken setting these types up so as not to damage or mark the subject.

How many exposures did you take of each?
