I saw that rock out there all dry and was sure the light and the angle was better out there…

Next thing I know I’m shin deep in cold water and I’m sitting on a cold rock with a trickle of water flowing over it.

Nevermind me, yeah, I’m fine, no I don’t think I hit my knee or anything else for that matter –How’s my  camera?

After looking it over, the camera’s fine and my beater lens is fine. I just seem to have wrecked a UV filter and ripped a ligament on one of  the legs of the tripod. It’ll probably need a brace from now on.


Considering all the possibilities I’m pretty happy to have only lost a UV filter.


All the way back I was reminded  that Gore-tex shoes hold water real well.

Squish walk,

squish walk.

That’s all for now, I gotta find some dry clothes.
