The shot that almost killed me
Posted By: Rimfiredude, 08-16-2016, 12:31 PM

I almost went into the lake to get this shot. My arm was black and blue from my wrist to my armpit.

I agree- definitely worth it! That's some stunning natural lighting.

Sorry to hear of your mishap, but you ended up with a nice image to show for it.

And you avoided hypothermia when you didn't go into the lake! A win on many levels if you ask anyone here who wasn't injured in your fall!

Nice picture - but not worth risking your life.

As this was posted nearly two years ago I would hope a fully recovery has been made. The great image remains though

Well done!
However, unlike the others I'd say "when does a picture ever gain more worth than your life?" Too many people in my life that need/want me around, I'd never jeorodize my life for a picture because of that.
