Some casual Saturday commercial cave strolling and back country driving. California Caverns was closed for the rainy season (☹) but Mercer is going strong. #conley #aragonitecrystal #speleothems #cave #geology #ibelongunderarock at Mercer Caverns

Increibles espeleotemas en la parte más desconocida de la sima Esteban Felipe, donde sólo se llega buceando un sifón o atravesando un estrechísimo y largo laminador no apto para todo el mundo. No me importaría pasar días allí abajo disfrutando de estas formaciones y recorriendo esta sima que parece no tener final. #speleology #espeleo #espeleologia #espelunga #caving #espeleotemas #speleothems at Belsué, Aragon, Spain

We have little creatures called Isopods in our cave! They are troglobitic, meaning that they have evolved to live underground. They have lost all of their pigment and both of their eyes and they are only about the size of a grain of rice!

Now that is something I don't get to do everyday. Got a chance to photograph some calcified roots. I've never seen anything like this before and haven't heard of anybody who has so it was a pretty exciting moment. #cave #caves #caveformations #caving #caveadventures #ilovekarst #tripodsunderground #speleothems #speleophotography

This time there were no bats to distract me - the Mexican free-tailed bats that live here in the warmer months have already migrated south for the winter - so I remembered to take some pictures of the rock formations. These photos don't do Carlsbad Caverns justice. Speleothem is the term given to any structure in a cave formed as a result of deposition. Some examples of speleothem are stalactites, stalagmites, drapery, and soda straws.

A shot of the grotto under a UV flashlight. This was the first try at getting the glowing calcite with this particular flashlight. It is a special flashlight that also has a filter which blocks out all visible light. Therefore, pretty much everything illuminated in the shot is that way because it is glowing and not due to being lit up with a blue greenish light! The water seems to be glowing as well... maybe because its saturated with calcite? The same stuff the formations are made of? .

Thin stalactites known as soda straws forming on the ceiling of Grotte de Gournier. These impressively thin speleothems are formed by the evaporation of dripping water, which leaves minerals behind. See the film in IMAX® and other giant screen theaters worldwide starting in fall 2019.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #imax #imaxdome #omnimax #caves #paleoclimatology #caving #france #speleothems #sodastraws #stalactites #grottedegournier

These drops happen in the blink of an eye. You would never expect there to be so much beauty in them until captured by a flash of light. Every person on a tour would have undoubtedly heard or seen these drops of water in the grotto not knowing how beautiful they could be under the right circumstances! .

Outside the cave these ice stalagmites are forming and will continue to decorate the entrance way throughout the winter. They are just a few of the many beautiful things you can see on a tour through Rats Nest Cave! #canmore #travelalberta #edmonton #yeg #calgary #yyc #explorebanff #explorealberta #visitcanmore #banff #rockymountains #alberta #explorecanada #caving #canadianrockies #cave #geology #adventure #explore #water #speleothems #stalactites #ratsnestcave #canmorecavetours #science #beautiful

Another splash caught by the flash! This is something you can really only see when using high speed flash to freeze the drops motion.

It's interesting to see each photographer do something new and creative with lighting in the cave. The setting requires you to create all of the mood while in an environment that is notoriously difficult to work in.

Pursuing caving as a hobby can be daunting and difficult at first. However, the possibilities are limitless and can take you all around the world. Pictured here is a lava tube cave from central Oregon, very different from the processes that formed our cave here in the Rockies! #canmore #travelalberta #edmonton #yeg #calgary #yyc #explorebanff #explorealberta #visitcanmore #banff #rockymountains #alberta #explorecanada #caving #canadianrockies #cave #geology #adventure #explore #water #speleothems #stalactites #ratsnestcave #canmorecavetours #science #beautiful #oregon #lavatube #volcano

Stalactites form through deposition of calcium carbonate and other minerals found in water. Their average growth is 0.13mm per year, it can reach 3mm per year depending on water flow and mineral content. These features build up particle by particle over the course of time, they are unique and fragile. It is our responsibility to preserve this natural heritage.
