A very nice seasonal post Grzegorz! I like the composition and the conversion to B&W, nice note as well, seems like these caves are worth the visit. Cheers!
Romania really must be exceptional. I heard so much about it lately that it seems it would've been good to see it someday.
Photo is great.
B&W was a good idea. It always works well when you want to show beautiful shapes like these one.
I like it very much
VERY WELL DONE & TFS
Looks like an Ice Palace. And COLD too. So these are stalagmites. Stalactites grow down and have pointed tips, whereas stalagmites are found on the ground and are usually rounded. I'll try and remember which is which...
Nicely captured Greg. So you were there last May, hasn't time gone fast. What an interesting place to visit. Very impressive.
Czesc, bylem w podobnej jaskini w Czarnogorze, niedlugo wysle jakas fotke stamtad. Nam w tym roku niestety nie udalo sie dojechac do Scarisoary. Mielismy zbyt malo czasu i zbyt wiele do zrobienia - i jeszcze te powodzie w dodatku...
B&W dziala swietnie w przypadku takich zdjec. Bardzo ladne przejscia tonalne i umiejetne uzycie flasha.

Nice to see you have pleasant (Photo)memories from your trip. I've been here like 8 years ago, I think. To complete the note a bit: right now not entire cave is open to the public (due to preservation reasons)

I think the conversion to B&W is excellent for this shot. Very good DOF and detail in this shot. Great notes with this very interesting shot.

Been there done that :) This use to be my turf for alpine and spelunking play, Greg , as a kid I was running with a yellow rain poncho and a hard hat with old school acetilene lamps of my dad or the new PETZL "lightning system" of my big brother...
P.S. Have you been to the "Meziad" or to the "Bears Cave" in Bihor? Those two are the most known. You brought me good memories

this is an excellent and very interesting Picture. Very good sharpness, details, lighting and composition. Thanks for sharing. (Near my dwelling is the Bilstein cave. It is a brook cave.)
I missed this one today, this is really cool stuff. I could just build a nice little cozy fire and sit down an stare at the stalagmites all day. Great shot Grzegorz. And yes I am A STNG fan! :)

Very interesting formation. it looks rahter ghostly and spectral. The tones are very nice and it's making me feel colder than I already am!
Very well done Greg.
