HOW WAS THE PHOTO TAKEN?:

HOW WAS THE PHOTO TAKEN?:

The photo was taken during the exploration of the aerial branch of the Grotta del Presepe, a cave already known but purely underwater. Our friend Francesco Papetti managed to reconnect it by air with the nearby Grotta dei Terni and we took the opportunity to take some shots. The main difficulty was the transport of the materials along the demanding and sharp bottlenecks that you have to do to get there, they barely managed to pass the speleo bags. The technical difficulty, on the other hand, was being able to illuminate the cave and the lake without causing the sediment to rise in the water. The photos were taken with our Sony α7RII and Zeiss lenses.

NOTE: Dane Mullinax nominated on 19 May 2021 WINNER #1BEST PHOTO CAVING. Previous winner announced on 15 May was found during audit not eligible for monetary prize and he renounced.

HOW WAS THE PHOTO TAKEN?:

HOW WAS THE PHOTO TAKEN?:

I always take my Nikon D850 with me, storing it in a sturdy waterproof box. In particular I took this photo in a very narrow section of that canyon. I rappeled down the waterfall before my friend. I decided the spot to shoot in order to frame the pic with the dark walls and that narrow overhead rock bridge. The roaring waterfall was plunging into the dark around me. I had to cover the camera with my body and turn my back to the scene due to the pouring rain. I knew I had only a few istants to take that picture before the lense would be soaking wet. So I waited till the very best moment, turned to waterfall and shot a couple of pics in a row. I didn't manage to portrait the strong wind and rain but I got a nice pic of my friend enjoing the scenery
