Dear colleagues from TN, two days before I visited Seegrote in Austria.

I thought that 2010 to annul it start at the lowest level.

So I got to visit this cave where I got these pictures that the form of collage.

Unfortunately not even the best pictures from a professional viewpoint, but conditions are extremely difficult. And that due to lack of light inside.

In comparison with pictures of punk Caves ... is a very big difference.

But still as general information, I thought of it still present.

Thank you for your time viewing and comments.
I wish you all a wonderful day,

History of the caves:

Due to a massive natural event originated in southern Lower Austria, one of the most impressive natural monuments in the world: the "sea caves" in Hinterbrühl. It was in 1912 when, after an explosion in the former gypsum mine Hinterbruhl streamed more than 20 million gallons of water from a so-called water bag with tremendous force into the corridors and galleries. The collapse of the water has formed a huge lake - the largest underground lake in Europe.

The mine remained closed until the date on which an international team of cave explorers in the 30's discovered the unique natural spectacle day, closed. The enthusiastic professionals took the initiative to make this fascinating attraction of the public as "mine" too accessible. In 1932, the "sea caves" opened for the first time as mine. From the outset, was the "sea caves" as a tourist attraction in the first rank.

Lieber Adrian,
Wirklichlich interessant diese oesterreichische Seegrotte, die eine ganz spezielle und "moderne" Geschichte hat. Das Wasser hat eine feine Farbe, die Grotte sieht aus, wie grösse Säle. Es gibt in der Nähe von Sion im Wallis auch einen grossen unterirdischen See, dort hiess es auch, es wäre der grösste:-). Hoffe Euch geht es gut und schicke herzliche Grüsse

Hallo Adrian
Due to minor surgery done to my foot, my time is restricted in front of the computer; I do however want to thank you for taking me on a journey in a world of the inside of caves which I never ever will be able see in real life. Your lovely collage is really impressive, just as each individual image. Best regards.

hello Adrian

i understand you the difficult conditions for this kind of photographys,
the upper one on the left side of the image is my favorite
photo of this seires because of the POV and because
it gives the imagination to the infinit, TFS

Hi Adrian

I have full understanding of the difficulties you had to deal with to capture these shots.
The total lack of light makes ones flash seem like a candle in a pitch black night. The
first problem is the width needed for the flash to properly light up the scenery as these
devices mostly tend to burst a concentrated beam in a predominantly forward direction.
The second problem is limitation of penetration and distance achieved from a flash. The
third problem would be the lack of reflective qualities of the walls in a cave. It rather acts
as absorbents than reflectors sucking the light like a "sponge". So, given these difficulties
I think you did very well with these shots in the collage. Very interesting material and
something quite different than the regular stuff we see on the site.

Well done and TFS.

Hello Adrian,
It must be magic to glide into this Austrian cave in a boat! You managed to get some really fine captures in spite of the darkness. I like your presentation of the four views and details and colours are wonderful. Well done!
