I had to slither on my stomach up to the edge of the rock ledge and hold my camera and tripod over the edge to capture this shot of Little Mertens Falls, located on the Mitchell Plateau and about 15 minutes walk from the Mitchell Falls campground.
Little Mertens Falls really isn’t so little – it’s still about 10-15m high, but when compared with Big Mertens and Mitchell Falls itself, I guess that’s why it got the name ‘Little’ 🙂
The tripod (with camera attached) was held flat lying down against the rock ledge, while I tried not to move during this 3.2 second exposure.
Canon 5D Mk 2, 17-40mm lens @ 17mm, f/20, ISO100, 3.2s exposure.
Shout out to Ken Duncan, who inspired this shot. I saw him on his stomach with his camera over the edge and I just had to do the same. He’s always looking for that unique shot and different angle.
