    Default HomeMade Waterfall

    I have always wanted to try and take a picture of inside a cave with a waterfall cascading within it, but was always afraid of ruining my gear. So I thought I would set up my own waterfall and see what I could come up with. So here are 3 of 215 shots that I came up with. And stayed nice and dry. Hope you like them.

    Thank you Mr. Taylor for your kind response. And Thank you TrooPicture for your complement and your interest in how they were composed. Maybe later today I will post in the "How I Took It." section and give a brief description on how I set up the shot and what equipment I used. But I think I have to wait till 10:10pm (24hr) before I can start a new thread. Thanks again for taking the time to look at my photos.
    Have a safe Holiday

    I have posted a picture of the homemade waterfall in "How I took it" with a short summery of how I set up the shots. Thanks again for taking an interest in one of my adventures in photography. And please keep in mind I am still learning.
    please be safe this holiday, and every day for that mater.
