First of all, thank God for weather sealed gear! You don't shoot the falls at this range without getting a little wet. As I have pointed out on another image, the world changes completely when you enter "the zone" near the base of Horseshoe Falls. It is furious storm of roar, mist, waves, and coolness that pounds out of the sheer volume of water pouring over that precipice.
