From a trip to the Bear River in the Eldorado Forest (yes, the very roughly the same area I had to get plucked from by helicopter). This trip was escorted by my bestest buddy from Nevada County, Cathy.
The Nikon D90 camera wasn’t on a tripod nor quite “hand-held”. My latest mentor would never use something like a ROCK to steady one of his thousands of cameras. :-O However he has the most steady hands I’ve seen with a slow shutter. At 1/15, he can nail a shot like this on his first attempt. Not me. The ROCK was quite accommodating and I have no pride or I wouldn’t have copped to this. ;-)
