Somewhere in between Second Beach and Marymere Falls, my tripod lost some parts, which is catastrophic in a photographer's world. Especially when you've planned to spend the day shooting waterfalls! Needless to say, I was grumpy, irritated, and heartbroken. However, I decided to make the most of it, which was really all I could do, right?
I used the fence as a makeshift tripod, crossed my fingers, and hoped for the best. The low angle from having to use the bottom of the fence actually ended up proving to be beneficial, as I probably wouldn't have attempted to go this low on the composition otherwise. There did end up being a bright side to the death of my tripod after all.
