Domestic duties completed for the day, I packed up the car with: camera, tripod, gumboots and a couple of snacks.
After dutifully letting Mr Slater know where I was heading, I took off towards Deloraine and then Liffey Falls.
Even though I hadn't been to these fall before I had a pretty good idea of what to expect as photos abound on redbubble and google earth - hence the gumboots, I was hoping to get a few different shots from the far side of the river.
Unfortunately it became evident within a few seconds of my first steps into the river that there was a hole in my gumboot and me being the softy that I am I couldn't quite bring myself to spend much time in the river with increasingly wet and cold foot.
I did venture off the bank but it require quite a bit of effort to compose, and focus the camera on the tripod while standing on one foot, so I didn't get far.
