Color underfoot - Lehman Caves by 

The wonder of Lehman Caves has you gazing up in awe and disbelief at formations dripping from above and rising from the floor. But this is a place you truly experience as the path takes you up and down steps, squeezing through narrow spaces for an introduction close and personal enough to put you right in the middle. So, look down too for wonders surround you and the ground below your feet may just give way to an abyss of color and mystery.

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    Such awesome colors in the caves…great shot!

  • Personally, I’m a big fan and practitioner of sobriety, but I have to think visiting a cave must be like tripping… not the scary bad kind of trip but the cool, psychedelic, awesome kind. And find the colors here pretty groovy too!

  • Oh so much to overwhelm any photographer with beauty and inspiration… and challenges. Tripods are not allowed as you almost have to wriggle through some spaces where anything more than the shirt on your back would bang against and damage the cave. Flash is prohibited too except for a couple isolated chambers. But I look at it as the challenge just added to the fun and adventure!
