Nice flowing water capture. Did you use a tripod?

Yes, a crappy travel tripod that I wanted to chuck over the falls. (I took the shot from above a smaller falls.)
It’s on my list to go back with a real tripod, and some way to deal with the fact that the lens gets covered with mist almost immediately. —Jeffrey

I thought we already solved the mist problem with a t-shirt? 😉

If you had seen the state of my T-shirt after the hike to get there, you would not suggest putting it into close proximity of a lens (or anything living, for that matter). —Jeffrey
