I converted this one to mono, because it was all grey anyway, particularly by the time I'd done some extreme photoshopping to recover the blown highlight.
You can probably just make out the two people sliding down the wires, I was at the base.
Waitomo Caves are about 300ft, 100m deep. This image was hand-held, Minolta X300 with Fuji ISO200 film.
This is a great shot, so moody and atmospheric
Thanks. I'm going again soon, maybe I'll try and get a better version - I was younger and fitter then though, so maybe I'll just peer in from the top...
haha! well, I'll be interested to see the shot!
Love the otherwordly mood in this shot.
Thanks. It was well worth the effort - it's far easier to go down then to climb back out.
Nice photo, Matthew! mysterious!
all your BW photos are very interesting
Thanks... it's quite a spooky place. Probably even more so if you watch 'The Descent'.
Cheers Steve, hope the shot brought back some happy memories!
