    The things we have to do for a shot. The only way I could get the angle I wanted was to wad into the middle of the stream and I did not want to get my pants and undies wet. It sucks to have to hike out with chafing underwear. It was DARN cold! How cold, about 1 inch, that's cold LOL. Anyway I will be processing the shot tonight and hopefully it will be worth the embarrassment.

    Naturally my sweetie had to record this posterior for posterity :tongue: This shot was taken at the end of highway in Sheep River Provincial Park, 46 km W of Turner Valley along SH 546. Just hike down from Blue Rock campground.

    Did she have to use a 17mm lens to fit that baby into the frame? :tongue:

    By the way, perhaps this is why all those kids left the playground in your earlier thread.

    Amazing and frightening - you have to post the pic - we've earned it!

    And geez, I hope you weren't just taking the twelve-millionth shot of a blotch of lichen on a rock! :surprised:

    Why is it the first thing we lose after 40 is our buns? My wife is always teasing me about my lack thereof. Welcome to "middle age" Eric!!

    The water got deeper before it got shallow again. I'm sure my voice must have changed as I waded through LOL.

    You know Eric? This thread gives me a thought about your "How to clear a playground." thread from yesterday. Perhaps you should consider your wardrobe a little more carefully. :wink:

    Oh Eric...I'm so sorry...

    I showed this to my sweatie (who had to see what had me laughing so hard), and after reading this;

    ...she laughed and said, "Ya, and it probably started out at two inches".

    Got a re-butt-al?
