Wet day at a waterfall.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

It's often a good idea to photograph waterfalls when the sun isn't too bright and troublesome so I set out yesterday with that in mind since it was a bit overcast. By the time I arrived however the weather had gone from overcast to drizzly wet ! Not one to give in easily though I soldiered on and managed to capture a couple of compositions though having to shelter the camera from the wet all the time didn't make it easy. I've had better from here but at least I didn't come away with nothing for my efforts.

Cheers Steve,yes I've learned now to set my shutter speed first to capture the water just long enough to give the required effect and then adjust aperture and iso to cope with the light. The dull day made it an easier task for sure.

regards, Sam
