Krazy Karst

So finally we get to the caves and they are well work the walk. One tunnels through the mountain popping out again half way up a vertical cliff. The formations made by the dissolved then re solidified limestone are extraordinary, as seen here. Taken with my little point and shoot. The vibration reduction is really impressive I think.

Yes, limestone caves and their formations are certainly fascinating. This is a great result from a point and shoot camera. I wish mine had vibration reduction :-/ Nice convergence of lines in your composition too.

Image stabilisation makes shots possible that just don't work otherwise(As you'll see tomorrow, when I go back to by roots-and get a shock...) Anyway enough of that...What a fabulous place. These formations are just great with the different minaerals giving different colours and shapes

Looks scary to me. Like some dead insides of something once living.
Beautiful work however.
