Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #71 – Creepy

Though Halloween is gone, Ann Christine thought we “might still have some interesting thoughts and images left for us and this challenge – things Creepy!”

I choose the place we visited in September. The odd shapes of the cave formation was kind of creepy.

Postojna Cave is a 24,340 m long karst cave near Postojna, southwestern Slovenia. It was carved by the Pivka River over millions of years.

The underground train took us into the cave. It is the first railway in an underground cave was opened in Postojna Cave in 1872.

I think the train may help preserve the cave since it has been such a popular tourist sight.


The water slowly dripping down the stalagmite deposits a thin layer of flowstone, giving its shiny white color.

Though the cave formations are fascinating, the formations, lighting, and shadows were creepy… I was glad we were touring the cave by the train most of the time.

During World War II, German occupying forces used the cave to store nearly 1,000 barrels of aircraft fuel, which were destroyed in April 1944 by Slovene Partisans. The fire burned for seven days, destroying a large section of the cave and blackening the entrance, more here.

I will host next week’s Challenge #72.
