Brandywine Falls

Mind blown 😳 I had seen this waterfall several times on IG before so when I saw the waterfall in person for the first time a few days ago, there were few surprises and thus it didnt impact me strongly (one of the sad effects of looking at so many photos of beautiful places on social media) BUT the amazing part of the experience that blew me away way was while testing out Olympus's OM-D E-M1 Mark II I experienced first hand this cameras incredible image stabilization. I took this photo causally with a 1 second exposure standing on a slippery rock and it turned out tac sharp. That is unreal. So not only is the camera light but now I don't need a tripod unless I'm doing Long exposures of 15 second or more (people report being able to do 15 second exposures hand held) Any ways just some techy stuff I learned this weekend while testing the camera out with @getolympus while #capturingWhistler. Most probably don't care about camera stuff so I apologize. This will be my last post about that but some of us, including myself find this ground breaking.

    I grew up in Prince Rupert….between Prince Rupert and Terrace BC….there are an amazing amount of Water Falls….depending on the season…they are a trickle or a torrent….but what I remember about all of them…was trying to teach my 3 year old nephew..to say waterfall…I would point…and say Water Fall…and he would say “down”…ROFL
