Wordless Wednesday – Ngilgi Cave

by Deb on July 14, 2010

Ngilgi cave

This photo is in Ngilgi cave near Yallingup in the south-west of WA.  [Ngilgi is Aboriginal, the ng at the beginning is pronounced the same way we would in long, but if you can’t handle that say it Nilgi.  The g is hard.] I have great memories of this cave as a kid, it was fun to take my own children there and see how it has changed.  In the photo you can see shawls (the bacon type things 🙂 ), stalactites, straws and helictites.  Straws are how stalactites get started, as a long thin tube.  Helictites are twisted and are possibly formed by the way water evaporates and draws other drops along.

Go to my Facebook Photos for Guess What?  This is a game with a cropped section of a photo relating to today’s photo, the full photo will be posted tomorrow.  This week’s prize is a 3D wooden dinosaur skeleton.

It’s very interesting. It the upper center it looks almost like eye sockets in the skull of a skeleton bent over to peer out.

We had such a good time, caves are so different to anything you see above ground.

Wow, you got a great variety of formations in that shot. We visited some caves recently, too, that I last saw about 30 years ago. They were just as exciting this time round and of course, the kids were fascinated.

That is a really cool photo! Did you take it, because taking pics in the dark is not always easy.

It’s quite well lit with lots of things to lean on. My nocturnal house photos didn’t turn out unfortunately.
