Eurospeleo Photography Workshop

This week some of us Finnish cavers are attending Eurospelo in Austria. The first session for Jukka, Tor, me, and our Canadian friend Andrew turned out to be cave photography, learning to use backlight with Philippe Crochet and Annie Guiraud. Amazing stuff, very happy that we were able to join.

I'm also very surprised that results improve if you know what you are doing :-) Philippe and Annie certainly know; some of their work can be found at http://www.philippe-crochet.com/

This part of the world has an unfathomably large amount of unskied terrain, so the decision on where to go did not come easily. After weighing our destination options, we settled on Kluane National Park, a huge patch of land spanning from the Alaskan border into the Yukon interior. It had exactly what we were looking for: remoteness, enormous mountains, and

While they waited for the storm to pass, Caldwell began to rave about his nine-year-old son. The kid could do 50 pull-ups, the guide
