I think the way you illuminated the scene is quite impressive. I guess there is no preinstalled illumination and you instead brought all illumination with you. The man in the photo gives an idea of the size of the cave. Did you use a teleconverter to achieve 22mm focal length ?

Pitch black!


Thank you very much. No, there is absolutely no light at all, just what we bring in. This was illuminated with a combination of old fashion flashbulbs and electronic flash. That's me in the photo, and although I'm only about 1.64 m tall, it's still an impressive cave passage. Yes, that 8080 shot was taken using the WCON-08D wide angle converter.
