I still have a few comps from my last visit to Panther Creek Falls last year. Was looking forward to get back down there to reshoot this with my 14-24, but as chance would have it, I may be laid out for a bit.

Getting here is pretty straight forward and easy. Scale a 7 foot “cliff”, complete with handholds and rope, BUT doing it with one good arm will be interesting. I may attempt this in the coming months.

In any case, there is room for improvement on this comp, but I like this one. My hotshoe of the D700 was literally dug into the log, and I am standing 2 feet below this view (on the lower cascade). Literally I didn’t even see what I was shooting. Makes the fun factor go through the roof 🙂

Find out tomorrow if I need surgery on my shoulder. Gonna be rough, regardless. Be careful out there everyone. I have slipped 1.45 million times in the creeks, but just takes one wrong move..

To my 8 devoted followers, I thank you for the comments! Stay safe!
