Honestly, with slightly mixed feelings I post this one. On the positive side I was very thrilled to figure out and get a fresh approach on Panther Falls. As much as this place is photographed, that was not easy. The logistics were significant and at least one person can attest to the fact that I am literally up to my upper chest in water here with my camera touching the water (and getting drenched). On the other hand, I do wish that tree in the middle-ground did not exist! I do think it is a cool enough image to share with others, so I hope you enjoy.
