The Blue Greenies

All the large caves in Wales are renowned for a particular formation, usually hidden away in the far reaches of the system. In Draenen there’s The Geryon, Aggy’s is the Courtesan, and in Daren Cilau there are the Blue Greenies. The journey to see these uniquely colourful speleothems however is somewhat tortuous, navigating through passages such as Acupuncture and Ankle Grinder – the bane of many a caver’s joints.

With my camera still in the cave from the last weekend at the REU, I managed to get these pictures on the way back to camp after a day’s digging. Thanks to Andy K and Tom C for their patience posing/holding flashes.
