The UK’s Daily Mail has an interesting photo story out on 25-year-old cave diving photographer Liz Rogers and her visit to the Piccaninnie Ponds cave system on the Limestone Coast of South Australia.

The amazing clarity of the water in the Cathedral, a large underwater cavern has helped the system become a hot spot for underwater adventurers. This has unfortunately led to a series of non-qualified diver deaths, which has caused access to be strictly controlled.

Liz and her colleague Ken Smith visit freshwater caves to measure the saline levels, determine the amount and direction of water flow between different lower and upper areas of the cave, and to explore the deeper sections.

For the full story, with plenty of pictures, head on over to the Daily Mail.
