Post KesslerCrane, Spintec Rain Deflector & Rainbows
Last month, Eric Kessler invited me to become a Kessler Shooter, so he's been sending me some new gear to play with.

This past week, my buddy Josh and I did a couple of set-ups in Yosemite with a 12 foot KesslerCrane. One shot was on the edge of a 500 foot cliff w/ a sweet waterfall, and the other was at the base of Bridalveil Fall in 100% mist travelling 20 mph. We had to strap the crane and ourselves in on the cliff edge, and use the spinning rain deflector for the mist shots.

This is all for the next episode of my web series Yosemite Nature Notes about rainbows and moonbows.

Here's a little behind the scenes footage from the cranes perspective:

PS: The Kessler gear works great and is a great value for what you get. The Pocket Dolly and CineSlider are already my favorite pieces of gear, and for a few more bucks, they can become sweet motion control tools for timelapse.

Outstanding use of the gear.
Could you post a picture of your rain deflector in use?
