Inside Elephant Hole Cave
A quick study from memory, because drawing inside the cave was impossible (not least because I forgot to take a pencil with me....) and so was taking a photograph. Having got in, the worry was whether I was going to be able to get out again. The point from which I would have been standing in this one is where a tunnel leads through the cliff to another opening which is almost impossible to see from the outside. I got through that, but the path was so treacherous that unfortunately I had to turn back the way I came.
Well, I can say I've done it now, anyway: I'm in no hurry to do it again. I just hope that road works which are likely to be undertaken in the area don't destroy this part of the cliff and its environs forever.
