In total darkness, this vast cave dwarfs a team of explorers as they paddle a small inflatable boat along the underground river in Planinska jama, one of the longest river caves in Slovenia. 500 meters (1600ft) from the entrance of the cave is a confluence of two underground rivers: the Pivka River, flowing from the Postojna Polje through Postojna jama (cave), and the Rak River, flowing from Rak Škocjan. This is one of the largest confluences of subterranean rivers in Europe.

Underground in Slovenia, Pivka jama (cave) and the Black jama (cave) are the final two caves along the subterranean Pivka River before the river finally disappears and resurfaces in the Planina jama (cave). These three explorers begin their traverse along a high level pathway.

Earlier this year we accompanied a team of scientists from the @uniinnsbruck to an area of Nevada called Ash Meadows Nature Reserve, where they have a field site. For several days they drilled out core samples of calcite from inside Devils Hole to help understand how the water table has gone up and down in the past. Along with shooting stills, we also teamed up with @surfacing_productions (UK) who cut and edited a beautiful short film. To see the whole film, please check out the link to Vimeo in my bio. #surfacingproductions #DevilsHole #Nevada #AshMeadows #cave #cavescience #science #climatechange #womeninstem #womeninscience #scientist #research #lab #laboratory #climate #geology #geography #shortfilm #documentary @deathvalleynps @umnpics

In a small inflatable boat, two cave explorers paddle across one of the emerald green lakes in Križna jama (cave). The cave is named after a nearby church of St. Cross (Sv. Križa). It is one of the few tourist caves in Slovenia, which don’t contain concrete pathways and strong lighting, which is harmful to the environment. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful and best preserved caves in the world. The cave features a chain of underground lakes with beautiful emerald green water.

It’s not always necessary to travel around the Slovenian river caves in a boat or up to your neck in the water. Occasionally there is a dry alternative. Here in Postojna jama (cave), the second-longest cave system in Slovenia there is a short section of via ferrata or iron cable-way, which makes it much easier to traverse at the height of the river. Postojna jama was carved out of the limestone by the Pivka River.

Emerald swimmer underground in Postojna jama (cave). Postojna jama is a 24,340m (15miles) long karst cave system near Postojna, in southwestern Slovenia. It is the second-longest cave system in the country as well as one of its top tourism sites. The caves were created by the Pivka River, flowing through the limestone.

Kačna jama (cave) is situated near Divača, Slovenia, which is located at an altitude of 435 m (1500ft). The cave is 280 m (900ft) deep and is the third longest cave in Slovenia. The iconic twin skylight portals allow cave explorers access into the cave where the Reka River can be seen again flowing steadily underground towards the coast. Ever since I first saw a picture of these majestic twin portals filtering sunlight into the cave, I dreamed of one day visiting it with my camera. Finally, a few months ago, my dream came true.

If you pardon the pun - It’s not all ‘plain sailing’ exploring the famous river caves of Slovenia! These photographs show how the team had to pick up the boats and carry them across dry land in between sections of the river.

Križna jama (cave) is located under the area of Bolke, Loškimand Cerknica field in Slovenia. The cave is named after a nearby church of St. Cross (Sv. Križa).

Chuffed to bits to receive the great new publication by @natgeo entitled Night Vision. Absolutely honoured to share a few pages with some of the greatest photographers from National Geographic. At over 400 pages, this ones a bit bigger than a stocking filler, but it’ll still make a great Christmas present! 🎄#NightVision #christmaspresent #NatGeoNightVision #book #coffeetablebook
