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.
This portfolio of photographs was shot for @NatGeoAdventure from the famous river caves of Slovenia, birth place of speleology and home to the 'human fish'. With my caving colleagues I visited 8 caves, each one varied and different with its own personality. For more from this amazing story, please follow the link in my bio. Words by @andrewbisharat.
