Mossbrae Falls

Here is a zoom in showing some of the detail at Mossbrae Falls. This was the last shot I got before I slipped from a boulder and smacked my camera face down onto a rock. I was attempting to get closer by crossing the river to a small dry area in the middle. The rushing current was far to strong to wade, so I attempted some fancy mountain goat-like hopping from boulder to boulder. Then, my water shoes slipped on a slick patch and I did a faceplant onto the flat rocks below. My camera mounted to the tripod experienced a similar hit to the ground, just about 1 foot from going completely into the rushing water, so I guess i was lucky. I heard a "plunk" and saw my lens cap being swiftly carried away. Fearing some injury, I stayed on the ground for a moment, assessing the damage, when suddenly a man appeared on the shore. Eventually I limped over to him and he introduced himself as the owner of the property. He lives onsite.

Lens is the FA31 Limited
