Hello and Welcome to my blog!!

Welcome!  Something new for me to try - blogging.  I plan on using this for updates on trips, photos, tips and anything else I can think of related to my passion and hobby - Photography

I guess the place to start is with my equipment bag.  I have a very comfortable Lowepro backpack that carries my camera - a Pentax K5-IIs.  For lenses, I use a Sigma 10-20mm, Sigma 17-70mm and Tamron 70-200mm.  I have circular polarizers for each as well as several ND filters of densities ranging from 0.6 to a full 10.0.  Tripods - depends on whether or not I am flying. If flying, I have a nifty Davis & Sanford Traverse that folds down to a cool 12" and extends to nearly five feet and supports  whatever I can put on it.  My main tripod is an Induro aluminum tripod (AT-214) with a Giottos ball-head.  Very sturdy and steady.  It is only a pound heavier than a carbon pod and it holds its own when set in a flowing river.  

I also carry a first-aid pack, GPS tracker, external battery for the GPS (allows over 30 hours of continuous use), maps and compass, flashlights, rope, whatever I need to keep me safe when hiking to and from waterfalls as well as around them. 

That sums up a basic bag - which I carry when hiking to new waterfalls.

Yes - waterfalls are my passion.  I have visited many in North Carolina and am constantly trying to visit as many as I can.  It is a feeling that is indescribable - the power of the falls, the sound of the water, the serenity that being around them brings.
