040310 Mammoth Cave weekend!

We arrived early and were lucky enough to get out of the rain into the 830 historic tour.

The very first signs of Spring were everywhere around us.

The grand entrance to Mammoth Cave and it's elegant waterfall...

It was really dark and difficult to photograph but I am a fan of high contrast and available light and things worked out for me.
The trick is to know your settings and be quick on the draw taking many many many shots.

I love my husband, Nicholas... he took me here for my birthday!


I see things in these photos the way people look to fluffy clouds for inspiration.
I'll most likely use these as underlying layers in drawings for my students as a creativity challenges in their sketchbooks.

Nicholas took some amazing photos
Check them out!

Fat Man's Misery is a tight squeeze of a passage. It is keyhole shape and is less than a foot wide around the legs in spots.

This was the entrance to The Frozen Niagara.


Diamond Caverns

This stalactite used to hold the world record as the largest. It was beaten recently by only 3 inches!
