Cave Cards are a new addition to the Shot in the Dark Cave Photography line. As a cave photographer for over 38 years, I've been seeking a way to make my cave images available in a high quality format that is affordable on even the most meager budget. Digital photography and the archival inkjet printer has now made it possible for me to create and individually print a series of Cave Cards that are suitable for framing. Each card is printed one at a time on my printer using archival pigment-based inks and photo quality matte paper that serves as a good substrate for crystal clear images that will last for many, many years to come. The photo fills the front of the card and the name of the image, the cave it was shot in and the general location are printed on the backside of the folded card. Cards are sold in packets of six different images or as individual cards with envelopes included. You may also order packets of six of the same image if you wish. Please inquire about your specific needs.

Cave Cards are sold as sets of six for $18.00 or as individual cards for $3.50, plus shipping.

The card sets are divided into several categories, as follows. The images below are the ones printed as an insert into the six card pack, indicating which phtos are included in the set:

The Carlsbad Cavern Set #1: This includes shots taken along the trail of world-famous Carlsbad Cavern.


The Lechuguilla Cave Set #1: Six stunning images from the most famous cave discovery of the last 100 years. Included are images from all the three major branches of the cave, including the world-famous Chandelier Ballroom.


Caver Set #1: The Guadalupe Mountains are filled with hundreds of magnificent caves of all shapes and sizes. While Carlsbad is a paved, electrically-lit tourist cave, all the others require extreme caving skills and determination to enter. This set includes shots from several of the finest caves in the High Guads.


Each of the images from the three Cave Card sets can be purchased individually, as well. In addition to those shown above, the following images are also available as Cave Cards:

first row: Crystal Spring Dome, Entry to Lower Cave, Gypsum Flowers in Chandelier Ballroom
second row:The Caveman, Pearls in the Gulf, The Guano Hopper
third row: The National Geographic Ladder
