"Light painting" the walls

With a head torch I set up my tripod - Pentax K1 and Samyang 12mm diagonally mounted - ISO 400 exposure 10s and I started "painting" the walls and ground with the head torch, a handheld torch and a handheld LED work light. I shot about 20 images for each panorama and ended up using between 10-14 per panorama. 6 would be enough for the camera/lens combination, but the "light painting the walls/water" was a bit hit and miss.

The cave here is about 7m high and about 30m from the water to the horizontal rusty bar.
