I think it's kinda sexy going down, deep down inside Mother Earth and I've had a lot of folks tell me they like to know the camera specs I use when I take these sorts of photos.
The five shots I'm posting today were published in an article at Go Backpacking 15 July 2010
The Title: GOING DOWN IN OKINAWA, JAPAN
Here's how I gotter dun. For all these photos I used a Pentax K10D with an 18-250mm Pentax Lens. The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto 725B Tripod and a Cable Release was used to trigger the shutter.
It really doesn't matter what make or model camera you use. I chose Pentax because of it's water resistance qualities and tough body. I go a lot of places where things get wet and, being a bit of a clod, I bang cameras around and drop them once in awhile.
I'd use the latest, greatest, most expensive Canon or Nikon if somebody else was paying for it.
This series of photos was taken at Gyokusendo Cave in the southern part of Okinawa, Japan JUN 2010
The week coming up, there's a big event called EARTH DAY and it happens on Friday April 22, 2011 but, you don't have to wait for the weekend to go down inside Mother Earth. Do the way I did when I gotter dun. Avoid all the tourists, grab your camera, take your time and getter dun on a weekday !
