I almost didn't get this shot. I did a bit of rock-hopping to get to this vantage point, set-up my gear on a rock surrounded by 3-4ft deep water only to knock my camera/tripod over when the mechanism got caught on my jacket. Needeless to say, I saved my camera from plunging in the water. But, could not prevent my Lee filter ring and ND filter from breaking when impacting the rock. A bit of a bummer, but decided to shake it off and make the most of it. There are no professional camera stores in the Tahoe area, so i had to drive to Reno the next morning to replace my Lee gear (once you use Lee, it's hard to do otherwise). Nvtls, the story could have had a different ending, with my tears splattering this electronic page and no image.
