Bridal Veil Falls, Multnomah County, OR

May 22, 2007: Bridal Veil Falls, Multnomah County, Oregon: Chris and I tried once again to photograph wildflowers in the State Park known as Bridal Veil Falls.

The instructional booklet for the flash unit referred to the camera’s documentation (which was nonexistent) so I was on my own to figure out how the combination worked. The unit required batteries (the salesman failed to mention this) so an extra trip was involved in getting the proper batteries. Finally, it all came together…
