Ah the red stick thing that's in the photos... I just assumed it was part of the filming that TOR was photographing.

and I assumed that in P1130066 the red bit was just some protective tape.



Well yes a pole for the LED lamp which is used as back lighting. This was kindly loaned by the Cerberus SS as it is a roller pole for painting the new ceiling. ( the CSS ceiling unfortunately fell down a while back. ) Hand lamps are LED Sky Ray which are cheaply obtainable on the net. I use them as well for live composite mode.

Ah... finally spotted that tiny bit of red at the edge of that photo.  No, it didn't ruin the shot for me :)

And as for the 'process being tedious to the viewer', never!  Fabulous pictures, as always.   :thumbsup:

If you mean the one of me I have clearly marked it as yours. If another please advise.


Ahh all sorted by phone. Yes the one of me. Sadly Flickr adds the name of the account holder so gives the impression that it is the account holders image. Now I have paid for Flickr Pro I am using that instead of Photobucket.

Well yes Laurie. Do I show my relatively poor images and try to tell a story or hoard them at home perhaps chucking a few on Facebook. Not everyone likes what I do here and, of course, they are welcome to their opinion. I have over 4,000 cave related images now so it is getting a bit hard to manage such a mass. Many will go into Photobooks which may survive myself and the social media. Ultimately you have to live with what you believe in and take the expected knocks you know will arrive. Maybe its something about legacy. What you leave behind when you are gone. Hopefully for the good. My mate had hoards of diving related research he would let nobody see. He died diving and left nothing as a legacy. Many years of work for nothing. Lord knows where his stuff is now. Much of his work was actually repeated as folk never knew it had been done.

Like many other cave photographers we have an extremely large database of cave related photos dating back many years, including entrances, underground shots, formations, foreign trips, digging and exploration. These are all sorted, named and dated. The database is easy to search and all of the photos will all be offered to the MCRA or other relevant groups.

There's nothing poor about your pictures OR. Your constant supply of great photos are as close as I am ever likely get to penetrating the depths now or in the future.
I have a bebilitating condition which means I'm unlikely to ever go into anything other than a show cave. I gave up cave photography when nothing seemed to turn out the way I wanted it. I spent 10 years as a 'weekend professional' reporting for a major Land Rover magazine, I've spent most of my life taking pictures of mountains and I'm currently on a project in the Bishop's Palace Gardens.
I'm still trying to find out what I'm good at.

Withyhill.

We only got part way into Withyhill during filming. ( up to Barabobath's Bath ). Interestingly we saw nothing cryogenic that we could recognise though there are lots of sediments .

This sediment bank collapsed in floods a few years ago.

That's it until the next time. I have been invited back to assist so will stick the old TG2 in my pocket. We have a particular conservation job in mind ( hence the post on Milliputt ). Hopefully there will be time to film it and complete work in Withyhill. There are many hours of film " in the can " . Over eight hours for Shatter Cave alone so how things will end up after the edit I do not now. Maybe even two films.
