British adventure photographer Robbie Shone’s passion for cave photography started at the age of 14, when he went on a school geography trip to Peak Cavern in Castleton, Derbyshire. Since then, he’s explored the most isolated, longest, deepest, and largest cave systems in the world, compiling a collection of photographs that is a testament to the beauty of nature.

‘This is a collection of six years work from some of the most beautiful and remote caves ever discovered, he tells Mail Online. ‘Some of these photographs will be the only record of these places that we ever see as no one will ever go back to some of these caves. Most of these pictures have been shot from a tripod on the floor which makes it all very safe, comfortable and easy to set-up. There are a couple which were shot hanging on a thin rope several hundred meters off the floor’.

Shone has gone to places like China, Papua New Guinea, Borneo, and the Alps, spending days and months at a time just to capture every nook and cranny of each cave. We’re surprised he hasn’t photographed Batman yet with all these cave exploration he’s done!
