This was a humorous shot to get, I can laugh about it now!! The best angle to get my shot was across the river so I found a narrow tree that had fallen across the river. I was holding Buxton my yorkie in one hand, my tripod in another, and had all my camera equipment in my backpack on my back. I knew if I slipped the outcome would not fair well for me. I opened the legs of my tripod to use as a walking/balancing stick, as I was balancing myself and using my tripod the legs started to collapse, shrinking my tripod. I froze, I don't know why but I couldn't move ha. I think the realization of falling in with all my camera gear, freaked me out and now my heavy tripod was of no use. I got down low and put Buxton on the log and he would not budge either, he looked at me and was like, um are you nuts!! Luckily, my friend Darvin came to my rescue and grabbed Buxton and my tripod and I shimmed across the log like I was riding a horse my feet kicked up in the air and using my hands I made it across. I'm glad Darvin wasn't filming that debacle and no one was around to see that spectacle!! Feel free to share.
