Publications and awards – NG France, Spelunca and more …

This year’s harvest of caving expeditions was not very rich, but  nonetheless some visual material came to be in printed form. The best publication in all respects is certainly photo-documented cave-diving expeditions to the french Padirac cave, which was published in the french edition of National Geographic magazine. There we were, together with Boštjan and […]

David VS Goliath

My mind often wanders to Olympus OM4-T, which kept me company for longer than a decade. Even today, I still pick it up sometimes, put it against my cheek and sigh at the wonderful view through the eyepiece. No auto focus, no ON/OFF switch, only masterful mechanics and optics. With fixed lens it never took […]

Tradition

The members of the caving club Železničar like to cultivate tradition in all its shapes and forms.

And there are also caves whose names are known, but their beauty is, despite the guardianship, gone. They are soiled with mud, written over in graffiti, bruised and destroyed, some accidentally, others on […]

Photo of the day of the National Geographic website

The website of the National Geographic magazine is surely one of the most visited websites. The daily visit probably goes up to a five- or even a six-digit number, as they brag about having visits from a crowd of over 20 million people per month. One of the popular sections of the website is the […]

The train is driving me into… the cave

I don’t usually take photos in tourist caves. I don’t actually know why. When I started with cave photography, I thought it was the simplest to take a photo in a tourist cave. It generally is, if you don’t complicate things and use the given lighting, but that’s usually pretty bad and the colour temperature […]
