Off Track - Undercover & At Peace

Further up the waterfall to find some passing rays. Immensely Untamed, Pure & Wild. It's one hell of a place to negotiate up hill, but heaven when you stop! Admittedly I need a better lens, tripod and patients to get these undergrowth shots down pat. I have a cheap but better lens coming. Canon 50mm EF F1.8II. Its loved and Hated, both traits I know well....so I should get along just find with it, and although a standard lens, I am sure it will better the kit 18-55mm that I have been using here. We shall see. Just checked the XFData and yea...I can do much better next time...this shot is about what it pictured, rather than just quality. I had a good friend with me, so was a bit pushed for time....see what happens when the new lens arrives and I go solo. I'll drop the ISO for sure and upload some larger versions! Just wanted to share the peace I found...I am going to start recording sound soon. One last note...what really caught my eye other than just the breaking light...WAS the reflection off that leaf in front of the left side tree. I thought someone was signalling SOS. Definitely some sun bathing happening there.
