While we were at Dunsmuir, CA earlier this year we decided to take a short break and visit the most famous waterfall in the area, McArcthur-Burney falls. It was our second time at the falls and after ill-advised 4th of July visit we picked a weekday and prayed for few people. Our wishes were granted as there were very few people at the falls and we had all the time to get the shots. Only problem was the rain which kept on falling, making the long exposure shot a pain to take.

Next time I am going to avoid the wide-angle route and see if a telephoto will get me the shot I want.
More of a snapshot than something more serious. I only had limited time and had to come through during the midday bad light. It's still a beautiful...flickr.com
