The area had received a fair amount of rain over the last few weeks so water was constantly dripping off the edges of the cliffs and falling down all over me and the camera, so it was a challenge to hide the camera under my shirt and pull it out, mount it on the tripod and rattle off nine shots in a row in order to create these shots.
All of these shots were done with a Nikon d300 and shot in HDRi, so each of these shots are a blend of nine images at different exposures. This technique came in very handy being as it was a very bright pretty much cloudless day. I had to wait many times for a few minutes to get a shot where no one was in the frame, and my dad did a great job of crowd control and keeping people from walking into the shot. We had a very short visit but I managed to get a few good shots.
I would love to come back here in the fall and get some shots with the leaves changing. What a beautiful place!!!
