Went back to the spring on April 28, 2012 to test some GoPro camera gear. I shot some other images along the way with the GoPro HD2 camera in an EOM housing mounted on a Quikpod monopod. I did two drops with the monopod, one with the camera in video mode and the other in still. I did the same thing in lateral dive into a dead end side cave to the vertical shaft of the primary cave.












Here is a short video clip of another free diving drop done with the GoPro in video mode.

At the turning point to ascend




It is getting a bit lighter as I move up. The limestone rings make me think I am passing up through some giant's throat.




There were SCUBA divers beneath me at points, rising through a curtain of exhaust bubbles.



Here is a short video clip swimming into one of the side dead end caves using artificial light, a Sartek movie light.




Easing out of the narrow confines into the final stretch.



The sky is in sight.



Here is a sketched section of the cave at the source of Blue Spring:
