About Me

My photo
We are known as PaWingers or just The Wingers by our Geocaching friends. When we found our first cache we had to come up with a name to log the find. We came up with this name simply because of residing in Pa. and because one of our many passions is cruising this beautiful country on our Honda Goldwing. Aside from geocaching we are passionate about most anything outdoors including hiking, kayaking, snowmobiling and biking. We are blessed beyond words with a wonderful son and daughter in law. We're also blessed with some terriffic family and friends. We consider ourselves very fortunate due to the fact that after being married over 40 years we still enjoy these things together.

Rainy day waterfalls.

Every one's wish would be to have everyday warm and sunny.  In Pa. that just isn't going to happen and mid April always has some nasty meteorological surprises that unfortunately sometimes pops up on a weekend.  We could sit in the house and complain about it or get out and try to enjoy it.  This particular day the rain rewarded us with some fantastic photo opportunities on an otherwise slow and lazy backwoods stream.  Unfortunately we weren't fully prepared for the all day downpour in that we had no rainsuits.  We did however have two large black garbage bags and after a snip here and there we pulled them down over our heads and stuck our arms thru and we were good to go. 

As we exited the Rubicon we also realized that the tripod was in the truck and not in the Rubicon.  This would add to the challenge with a handheld time exposure.  After picking our way along a treacherous steep side hill we finally arrived at the perfect spot.  With Jeanne holding the umbrella just perfectly the camera would remain dry and I would have a gentle trickle running off the umbrella into my left ear.  I think she did that on purpose but this is the discomfort one must endure for the perfect shot.  All in all I was pleased with the image shot at 1/5 of a second while handheld and a stream flowing thru my left ear.  Hope you like it too.
