Caves of Kras

Descent (223) reported on the First International Meeting of Cave Photographers in France, the illustrated coverage drawing much praise. The second meeting moved to just outside Trieste on the Italian–Slovene border, producing a new crop of images from some of the world’s top creative cave photographers.

Poetry in Motion

A sophisticated digging system has been in use in Rowter Hole, where scaffolded shafts are yielding some significant advances.
