Racing The Storm

Racing the storm.  I happened to find a moment where the rain wasn’t pouring down.  While I was dry, relatively speaking, at this moment I had been standing in the pouring rain with my camera waiting for the right shot for quite a long time.  Well, that might not have been the best idea.  Don’t let the big marketing machine fool you.  The weather resistance of the Canon 7D isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.  This turned out to be a very expensive picture after my camera crapped out and needed a quick trip back to Canon to fix a little “moisture” issue.  See more images at SMB-Photo.com

I absolutely love visiting this waterfall despite the crowds.  You can actually see the falls from the interstate so everyone stops.  Despite that it’s one of the most beautiful and iconic sights in Oregon.  There is beauty out there right under your nose every day.  Don’t forget to stop and smell the waterfalls.
