Mouth of a Cave, Spring Mill State Park

Mouth of a Cave, Spring Mill State Park

We took a nice hike along a trail that had old-growth hardwood, then walked down a lovely set of old stone steps down into a sinkhole that housed a dock, rock-walled dam, and cave entrances on opposite sides.

Since the weather was swinging to warmer temperatures and rain, the snow was melting quickly. Ice fell off the sides of the caves and plopped into the creek. This being karst country – a land dimpled by sinkholes and caves, the creek hardly had a chance to see daylight, plunging back into the limestone after 50 yards.

Carve away, creek!

Taken at ISO 100, F14 for 4 seconds to blur the creek. Processed in Lightroom to fix chromatic aberration, sharpen, and highlight rock walls. Darkened the front of the image slightly to better highlight rocks.
