|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This photo was taken in the "Chamber of Chimes" in the Timpanogos Caves National Monument and shows a variety of formations.|
This small chamber lies about halfway through the cave system, and is most well know for the Helictities which seem to curl and grow in random directions.
The formations that look like flowing mud are called "flowstone" and the long narrow ones are "soda straw" stelagtites.
The colors in this photo did not seem to get washed out by the flash because I was about 6 feet away. I had my flash set a low power on all of these cave shots, but I was just too close on some of them.

Great textures and colours, I like it.
This is the best of your 3 cave posts, the flow stone and straw stalactites even the ones defying gravity whos name I forgotten for the moment. Nice one.
A few details about the cave system would be nice to have .
