Not a tea garden..

2003-03-09 14:38:57.786408+00 by meuon 4 comments

It was a beautiful Saturday, Fricks cave is only open once a year (it's a major bat home) and cavers from all over meet for an 'open house'. It's an easy and fun cave, there were even a few kids along and lots of neat people. Add a trip to 'On Rope 1', a Mexican Resturant and a 4 wheel drive "road" to another pit.. Wish I'd started this stuff years and years ago..No Gary Larsen cartoons, but scribbles and pictographs from Civil War soldiers and Native Americans worked better in this venue.

Damn, awesome color for a time exposure like that. Neat picture, I'd like to see more as you explore further.

[humbly]- Thank you.. I will be exploring more..and yes, I'll post some more pics. Monday's meeting is about Digital Photography in Caves. It should be educational.

I got to play with Mike's Sony before. Sony's CCDs seem to do quite well in low-light situations. The next digital camera I purchase I make will be based significantly on it's ability to capture low-light images. I hate using a flash. Sure, it results in a better picture - but it's extremely intrusive in alot of places and misses the colors that the eye actually sees.

That micro Sony that's roughly the same size as the S100 is getting my attention, but I told my boss that I want one of our D60s for myself when we switch to the Fuji S2[Wiki] on our rig, and he seems amenable, so the coffers will be refilling for a while after that. Luckily the Canon 10D[Wiki] just came out, driving the D60[Wiki] price down a bit.
