crawl spider indefinite loop on images

Just ran Screaming Frog SEO on a site and it looks like crawlers get stuck in an infinite loop on image galleries.
Once initial crawl completes they move on to looping urls like:

where each number is a blalboa gallery image.

I let the crawler run until it was waiting to check about 250,000 urls. Obviously the site doesn't have anywhere near that.

Crawled the site with Visual SEO Studio with the same result. I remember maybe 6 months ago this was not an issue with this specific site or the gallery.

While all of these are Canonical, It seems impossible to generate a comprehensive sitemap with this problem and I'm not sure how google will be crawling balboa galleries.

Has anyone experienced this or know where to start troubleshooting?

Thank you for informing us about an issue. We have explored your website and found that issue with URLs comes when the page includes more than 1 gallery, for example: 

Will be great if you can send us Joomla admin and FTP access and we’ll fix at your side. Please use our contact form:
