Photographer's Note

The caves of la Balme are made out of limestone which is sedimentary rock, found beneath the sea 170 million years a go. In those days the region was covered by water.

I took this photo inside the cave, as you see, there is some water which come from 130 meters underground river. Divers discovered 7 siphons within the gallery of the cave which actually stretches for additional 3.5km.

Since I didn’t have the tripod with me, I handhold the camera using ISO-800 for 1/8 seconds.
