We mark absolutely uncharacteristic for these places a part of a landscape - a magnificent suspension bridge through Zilim and we go further - up to base camp which is broken on a marge of a fantastic oak grove.
Quickly we put tents, we have breakfast, and - forward! Hour walk in the most beautiful places upwards on coast of the river, and here we at an entrance in a cave!
Unpleasant enough (a dirty ice!) descent on the longest in the Bashkir caves to a glacier.
At the first attempt to begin photographing, I face a unexpected problem - pairs from breath it is lit by flash! (As in a cave, as a rule, is not present the slightest breeze this of pairs does not vanish at all, and envelops literally, so at times even it is visible where to go a leg!).
The special technics of cave photographing was gradually developed - to detain as breath is possible longer, to allocate a head aside, (and it is even better - back!) to cover a mouth from a camera with a palm, to press the button of a shutter, to look result, to erase received muddy something...
If to consider, that mostly marked procedure was carried out, we shall tell so, not in studio conditions, and at all even on the contrary, and, as a rule, on the move, it appears, that from more than 200 enough the tolerant staff it is possible to count offered result quite comprehensible to the first time!
The first clever idea "and what for this all was necessary for me?" Has appeared at a kind of half decayed wooden ladder at which obviously insufficient length was with interest compensated by the torn off pair-other crossbeams.
Certainly, absolutely superfluous will specify, that from that place where the ill-starred ladder came to an end, our tactful conductor Alexander has kindly suggested to climb further by means of the knotty cord fixed by someone hundred years ago about which reliability it has been muffledly told about the following - " If it is required, can keep for her. But it is not strong ".
