My camera had just died at a previous waterfall, so in my depressed state of mind I forgot to throw my waders into the car as we hit this next location. I had spotted this comp from the shore while walking around, so when my friend Ron offered to lend me his camera after he got done shooting, I figured what the heck. I took off my shoes, rolled up the pants and walked in.

Well... between the uncomfortably cold water freezing my feet and fumbling around with a new camera I wasn't familiar with, I took about 5-6 shots and came shooting out of the creek. I'm amazed I even came out with a shot, but I give more credit to the camera having been all setup and ready to go than anything I did on this one. =)
