Amateur photographer Laura Brown, from Highgate, has taken underground exploits to another level with her Bare Naked Caving calendar, shot at 13 locations across the country and in Paris. All profits from sales of the calendar will be donated to cave rescue teams in Wales and Yorkshire. Navigating cliff faces and deep, dark caverns is difficult at the best of times, but carrying heavy camera equipment and lights brings extra challenges. The moment captured at a unique vantage point was one the photographer wanted to include in the calendar, along with more serious depictions of man versus nature. But the climbers were not the only ones to strip off, Ms Brown also shed her clothes to stand naked in front of the lens. Caving is a rare hobby when you live in a city, but it was one Ms Brown could not resist when she found the Westminster Speleological Group, a London club devoted to caving. With 30 active members, the club goes on trips all around Europe to find the deepest of caverns, complete with underground rivers and hidden tunnels. Ms Brown said that being caught under a waterfall is the most common cause of disaster, and she once had a close call when she got stuck on a rope, amid freezing cold, gushing water.

By Bianca London for MailOnline. The calendar, which shows caving enthusiasts in the buff as they explore caves in the UK and France, shows a string of men and women clambering around in the rocks with not an overall between them. One shot shows a woman wearing just wellies and a harness as she clambers up a sheer rock face and another shows four in-the-buff cavers wearing nothing but hard hats with lights on them. Cavers embraced the elements and posed for the calendar totally naked, save for a pair of wellies and a safety harness. The calendar, which is donating its proceeds to the caving rescue team, is selling like hot cakes. Caver Laura Brown, who took the photos for the calendar, said: 'I liked the idea of the human form naked in a cave, but I also wanted to raise some smiles.
