At around 3, I set up. I stand on the wooden platform that juts out and 100 feet above the lower part of the falls. One other person is there, and I wait until he is gone. As he walks off, the platform stops shaking, and I start shooting.
The temperature hovers around -20 C, or -8 F, and after about thirty minutes, the aperture on my camera freezes at f/16. I try a few exposures at f/38 which blows out all the highlights.
Forty minutes in, my battery starts to malfunction, and I'm forced to abandon exposures more than f/8.
My fingers and feet start to go numb at four o'clock, and my camera all but shuts down.
I call it quits and dart back to the car, where I discover the only real damage to my camera is that I've reduced the battery life. My fingers and toes come back to life a little later.
This is one of the last good exposures from today.
