Is it this waterproof?

I took my life (and my K10D) in my hands to get this.

It's not easy to see where the river ends and the sea begins.

All 14mm DA.

Dunseverick waterfall.

And a second looking towards the causeway headlands.

Wow, great shots. Especially for hand held. Can't do that with a camera or lens without anti-shake.

Exposure on the first shot was 1.5 sec so no way camera was held in hands. Definitely tripod. I'd like to meet the guy making pictures like this without tripod.

It's a 14mm lens so with the right kind of bracing (sitting on a rock, perhaps) I think you could pull it off. We're only seeing a scaled image...

Very nicely done, by the way!

Lovely photos, as always from you, Andy.

I read the first 4 words of your first sentence, followed by the last 3, and thought, what a photographer would do for a great picture! (And how come you're around to posting these?)

I'd love to visit Ireland some day - I'm originally from London, and never got over there while I was living in England.

I doubt it. He would be kind of a stiff

I remember trying to get out on the rocks between a couple of small waterfalls one time. It isn't the wet rocks that are dangerous - it's the damp ones. Deadly slippery. Be careful.

Judging a photographer on the basis of equipment is like speculating one's physique from a gym pass.

Wow Andy, be careful. But very nice image.

Is it just me, or is there a yellowish colour to the waterfall ?

Re: Is it this waterproof?

Thanks folks for the kind comments,

The exposure time was too long to handhold. 1.5 seconds on the 1st shot. It was shot from a tripod and released by remote control.

Sune, Northern Ireland has very peaty rivers and it gives the waterfalls here a brown tinge. I think that is what you are seeing.
