Motion Picture

Everything moving, everything flowing, everything and everyone working together is what you hope for in a cave rescue. Because every effort, every thought, every action should be focused towards the greater goal - to help a fellow caver who is injured - hurt - in need. Caving comes both with great reward and risk. Sometimes even the most prepared and safe are caught off guard by accidental odds and in need of help. A true rescuer chooses to place knowledge before egos and knows their limits - pushing themselves only so hard as not to become a liability themselves.

 

This is one of my favorite photos because it feels just like the rescue - constant motion - constant effort - like you're right there - a motion picture - everything happening - surrounding the quiet calm of the patient - who is in perfect focus with the light of the Lumedyne i was holding being bounced off the ceiling - falling quietly from above and the whole scene collected pixel by pixel in the camera Nathan was holding.
