#AdventureShot – Check out this amazing giant cave

An #AdventureShot doesn’t always have to be action – and nothing says it better than this pic.

For most action sports photography, the challenge is to capture a moment that may only last a fraction of a second. But for photographer Robbie Shone, working in the depths of a huge cave system in China, it's the exact opposite. For this shot the cavers had to stand still for 10 seconds to get the photo.

Suspended on a thin rope, engulfed in cloud and lost in time, a tiny figure is dwarfed by the sheer size on a monumental scale of Cloud Ladder Hall in Dong Wan Dong cave. The beam of light cast by another's headtorch pierces the fog yet illuminates nothing. “This naturally formed room is so large it has its own weather system,” says Robbie.
