After a very bussy speleo and survey time a new blogpost. This time a photoblog, the theme is of course caves.
At the entrance
The entrance of a cave is a place where the enclosed area of the cave meets the outside air, light and world.This gives some nice effects.

|This picture is taken at the bottom of a huge collapsed room which is discussed in more |
detail in the previous post
If caves decide that horizontal is to mainstream and throw a pit at us we might need some rope. The following photo's picture some of the used equipment.
|Ewoud shows the equipment in a"small" cave which continued in a quite long meander. |
length currently explored: 727m
Depth currently explored: 176m
|Heide prepares a spit to rig ropes in that same long cave.|
In together, out together.
