Day 151 > Inside The Maribel Caves

I entered this small, dark cavern in the cliff side at Maribel Caves County Park from the sunny forest and was able to see almost nothing at all. As my eyes adjusted I could make out a second opening ahead of me but it was still too dark to try to go any deeper with out a flashlight or lantern. But being curious about the cavern I was crouched in, I decided to try getting a few photos using the flash...which worked out horribly. So instead, just for fun, I set up the camera on my little mini tripod and tried using a long exposure time to use as much of the dim natural light coming through the cave's opening to reveal more of the detail in front of me...and was pleasantly surprised to find that it worked out very well!

  1. Imagine if the photo revealed all kinds of creepy-crawly and fanged, winged creatures staring back at you!
