    Yesterday morning, I took a journey with my E-M5 + 17/1.8, and a Fuji XE-1 + 14/2.8. My purpose was to travel from waterfall to waterfall throughout a section of West Virginia's New River Gorge. Yesterday evening, I submitted a thread with the same name over at Amin's FujiXspot. Here are some of the E-M5 photos. Because of the narrower FOV, I wasn't able to get good compositions of some of the bigger waterfalls I encountered. Those I had to get with the APS-C Fuji and its 14mm. The day started out nice enough, with a gorgeous sunrise, but the clouds soon rolled in, and by the time I was hiking to the last couple of spots, the rain was pouring. Good thing my wife bought me a waterproof hiking jacket for my birthday.

    I forgot to add one. At this point the river is technically known as the Kanawha, but it is really the same river.

    guess?
    Good to see that you have real water there and not that blurry, velvety stuff they have in a lot of places lately ;)
