We were sorry to hear of your fall. Where were you when you slipped? What happened?
In my spare time I love to shoot landscapes but on my recent trip to Luxemburg and the German Eiffel (which was planned from July 13-27th) I found out that taking photos can be dangerous to your health as well.
The first few days of our trip were great taking pictures in and around the town of Vianden and the iron mine in Rumelange. Then we decided to go to the German Eifel and the town of Irrel to visit the 'Teufelsschlucht' (the Devil's Canyon) and the nearby rapids. However, the day sadly ended for me in an hospital in the city of Trier.
While taking photos of the rapids, I slipped off some slippery wet rocks near the rapids, fell in the water and dislocated my upper arm and shoulder. Luckily bystanders were able to help me quickly and we rushed off to the hospital.
