A friend stopped me on the street today to give me a photo-op hint, second time that’s happened this week. Today’s tip was to stand out in the middle of the Eel River and take a picture of Fernbridge at sunset. Since the river is so low, it’s possible to wade across the entire width, or what’s left of it. The sunset started out pretty nice tonight, but by the time I rounded up everything I needed, and drove out there, it had lost its glory. But I decided to proceed with my plan just to test everything out as for best spot, what lense to use, etc. First thing I found out, it would have been better to bring the waders, rather than just the boots. It is still about 3 feet deep in the middle. At least the water temp was fairly reasonable, I found out after it crested the tops of my boots. I think it would also be a much better picture a bit earlier in the year when there is a bit of water covering the sandbar in the middle. But even so, I ended up liking the pictures I took, and it was worth getting my pants wet.
