just a moment

I thought I would be the only person insane enough to hike Watkins Glen in a total downpour. But there she was, standing on the bridge checking out Rainbow Falls. Funny how I braved the rain only so I could shoot the falls without people walking in my shot - and my favorite image is one with someone in it.


Have a great week everyone.
