So, we started hiking upstream looking for compositions. We skirted the bank for as long as we could, and then a little wading was required. I discovered this location and really liked the way the water seemed to almost be flowing off a "shelf" in the creek.
Setup was dicey (I need to remember to have my wife take photos when I'm in tough positions so you understand what I'm talking about :) ). I had one tripod leg extended to nearly 7 feet and sitting in the creek. The other two were precariously positioned between a couple rocks - and me? I was half squatting half standing on a wet rock with a steep slope right into the creek - perched on a small piece of moss that I hoped with not let go of the boulder!
From this decidedly awkward spot I was able to "massage" the camera into position and get the shot I was after. Thank goodness for wide angle lenses - and sticky moss!
