I took these with my new camera. The zoom is noticeably better on the new camera than on the Fuji, but you have to be ready for it to zoom because it zooms quickly.
There are a lot of features that I haven't played with yet (like a fish eye setting; that should be fun!).
Because the look outs over the gorge ARE so high above it, it made my knees tickle. And in order to get any shots without getting the protective iron bar "fence", you had to climb up on a ledge and shoot down over and between the bars of the fence. My knees were very tickly at that point. And poor old Dan made that climb all the way down (as you may recall from the previous post) and had nothing to show for his effort.
The year we were there, in the spring, the water was roaring over the falls and there were kayakers coming down the falls (it was some big doings for kayakers and I guess they can only do this once a year).
The bottom two shots are of the "lower" part of the falls. It was hard to get a good shot due to having to shoot on an angle between the iron posts of the fence.
