In the Endless Caverns

August, 2022
Endless Cavenrs
What might be the best way to escape the heat of a summer day than tour caverns? Walking underground is always a cool experience, both in metaphorical and literal senses.
In the absense of the day light and limited artificial illumination, I decided to do something new to me: pushing ILFORD HP5+ to EI 3200, basically underexposing it by three stops. Images came our as expected: with high contract, and deep shadows, but I think they perfectly reflect the mood I had in caverns and hold memories of that visit.
