25611. View of the entrance, the trail is winding down its slope
25612 - 25614. Panoramic view out of the wall niche at the middle of the trail
25615. Telephoto view of the riverbed from the trail, upstream, to the bottom of the collapse which brings daylight from the east.
25626. Upstream view of the riverbed with the stone bridge in the distance. Water level was low, the flow maybe 10 liters per second or less.
25625. View of the entrance slope over which the trail descends, from inside the hall
25617. View downstream - the flash is 78 meters away, measured by tape on the floor, flash fired. The light left bottom is daylight, middle and right painting with light by a LED torch.
25618. Second try, flash was 98 meters away from the camera and it fired.
25620. Third successful attempt, at a distance of 105 meters
25621. Rock in the riverbed, camera's position during the third try.
25622. The surrounding of the flash at the downstream end of the hall.
25624. The rock on which the tripod and the flash were positioned; the helmet light was used for camera's autofocus.
25628. View west of the forest above the access trail to Zelške jame, against the light, close to sunset
25629. View of the river from the collapse - the riverbed is still full of big logs, uprooted by February 2014 sleet.
25630. Both water level and the flow were not high, the latter was around 100 liters per second, yet probably an oder of magnitude more than the river had at its source, at the exit of Zeške jame Cave.
