    Here are some photo's I took at the spring, this spring is awesome even though it's not very large. It has some of the clearest water I have ever seen.It also has a very deep cave that only certified cave divers are allowed to enter. Across the cave entrance is a large metal gate that can be unlocked for certified cave divers. This www site will give you more info on it..

    Hope you enjoy...

    1. Dave and Travis is about 20ft under crystal clear water. Notice the fish swimming around them.

    5. Tanks waiting to be used, you can see part of the spring in the background.

    6. This is the private home on the spring. They own and operate the spring. The couple is getting quite elderly and the state wants to come in and take over..THEY SAID NO!

    Interesting series.
    I think I would have focused more on the tanks in #5, though...

    Thanks for the nice comment Melissa, the reason for focusing a bit away from the tanks is that I wanted the eye to travel back to the spring and see the tanks as secondary. Maybe not the tihing I should have done. :)

    No problem...I feel very far behind the curve when it comes to photography!
