Amazing New Long Exposure Photos from the Waitomo Caves, New Zealand
The Waitomo Caves, King Country, New Zealand. New incredible pictures have emerged, as photographer Joseph Michael has visited the unique cave. The 2 million year old cave system under a small village hides a rare species of Arachnocampa luminosa worms, that create a glowing effect.

Photographer has used long exposure to capture the overwhelming site in the limestone caves. The blue bioluminescence makes these spaces look unearthly and magical indeed. Australia is another place where these radiant worms are found – a true phenomenon, that makes nature the best artist around!

Why to go there?

The Glowworm caves on the North Island in New Zealand are the only place where you can admire this kind of effect.

When to go there?

Anytime: the caves are open 365 days a year.

How to get there?

The caves are 2 hours from Auckland, 1 hour from Hamilton and 2 hours from Rotorua. Get there by car or bus.
