My TAG Dec 03 photos

With the help of Molly Wright, Brandon Stephens, Brian Killingbeck, and Benjamin VonCramon, we managed to get several good pictures of Fantastic Pit lit up from the bottom with just one of my strobes. The heavy spray made the photography difficult, and the strobe power pack blew up before we finished, but we got some good pictures like this one showing the upper 510 feet of the waterfall:
