In the Great Otway National Park,Victoria,Australia. The rain did not once cease on the walk into the falls, during the shooting, or on the way back. I found that Parks Victoria had provided a steel mesh floored lookout ,which made proper use of a tripod impossible. I had to lean it against the railing ,extract my camera from my pack under my rain poncho, change the lens (silly me) – all the time trying desperately to shield the camera from the rain with an umbrella. Now I keep three pieces of strong cardboard in my camera pack and they have been very useful, since I have found that bridges and lookouts damaged by the fires have all been replaced with steel mesh.
