Down in the tunnels

A land serene

A crystal moon

 

It's only forever -

Not long at all

Lost and lonely

That's underground

Underground

 

Daddy, daddy, get me out of here

I, I'm underground

...

(by David Bowie)

Inside Postojna cave. After some 15 minute walk (just after I shot this pic) suddenly all lights went out.

 

Dunno if that was made on purpose to spook the tourists or due to some failure. Anyway, the blackness was total and complete. Just the constant plunk-plunk of falling water drops was heard.

 

When I pointed the camera around and activated the lightmeter, the auxiliary autofocus beam that usually can't be seen at all, was suddenly shining like a lighthouse beacon. :-)

 

After one or two minutes the light returned and we went on.
