    I don't like lumping equipment around, big cameras, torches, ruck sacks loaded up with shit don't do it for me, I like exploring and taking a few snaps for personal memorys & sometimes to share.
    However this was one of them times I wished for a fandango wide lense whatever they are camera, The wheel is impressive and I could of spent a bit of time photographing it to a higher standard, instead I had to make do with the trusty samsung.

    Anyway, after a bit of digging around the entrance to lower the level of the water, we decided to head in....
