Into the Jungle

This was taken several months ago when I made a third trip here, by myself determined to get a close as I could to this gorgeous waterfall and arena. A shot I posted earlier was from further downstream and from my first visit. To get to this spot I had to wade further upstream on the right side, then pick my way back to get to this centrally located spot. With the intention of showing as much of the width of the stream as possible and as close as I could get. From this spot I was so close that I only took 6 shots because the spray would not allow me take any longer of an exposure. And that was with the use of my umbrella contraption to keep things dry between shots. Maybe if the spray had been blowing a different direction I could have gotten off other shots with longer exposures. And if so, I would have gone for a pano to show the other "falls" or run offs out of the frame to the left. But that will have to be for another trip this spring. This is a single shot that had to be warped because of the distortion of the small falls to the left.
