Description

This was my first trip to these wonderful falls in Dunsmuir, CA. Within 15 minutes of arrival, I had managed to smother the inner side of my long-sleeved t-shirt with moss and mud, and the backside of my shorts with mud and water. I often get really low to the ground at places like this, at the expense of looking like a dirty wild mountain man in just a few minutes of shooting. I had the pleasure of shooting with four friends one perfect Monday morning this summer. After being the sole visitors here and having Mossbrae Falls all to ourselves for 3, yes 3, hours...it was off to Burney Falls, Manzanita Lake in Lassen Volcanic National Park, then to Redding to catch some lightning strikes over the famed Sundial Bridge that crosses the Sacramento River.
