Phew. Scenes like this are visually stunning but man, that one little river that cut this gorge gets my mind turning. Minerve, France.

holy shit, so Monty (awesome dude that Grant introduced me to in Wellington) just released some new music. Grant filmed his last music video which I helped a bit on but mainly took some stills. 
Anyway, holy shit! Amazing stuff as always.

This is the photo that I would use to sell Minerve to travellers: big cave, remote, cool town and in stunning landscape.

The caves are formed by a river that sometimes flows through when it rains. I ran out of time but it seemed like the riverbed snaked its way on up into the hills, cutting swathes out of the cliff faces and forges new highways. The two caves closest to Minerve could easily be 15-20m in height.

Minerve, near Carcassonne and a spectacular place to visit. Not only is it a picturesque French town perched on a rocky outcrop, it rules over an immense cave system.

The lake near where we stayed in France. It was a really beautiful landscape
