or "Gorillas in the Deluge" - before we went to Rwanda I had looked at everybody's beautiful lighted dry pictures of gorillas in the Volcano National Park - I watched videos - what a fantastic experience - nobody mentioned that April was monsoon season, so our experience was an adventure that you would not believe - rain in buckets , gorillas in black bamboo jungles , hiking in mud that resembled wet cement and chocolate pudding , drenched to the bone - but we had a blast - exhausted - I have the utmost respect for wild life photographers and video professionals -they surly endure much of what we did and still get great shots -
Shooting in low light is far better than shooting in no light - f/2.8, 1/30 sec, iso 1600 to 3200 produced many black blob shots - however I saved a few with much massaging - my Husband had better luck with his video -but even he gave up when we could not keep anything dry or in focus -
check out his video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeZB6tRgdkE

here are a few salvaged shots from our trip - thank you canon -my Mk IV and 70-200 kept on working and we got better shots the next day - will post them later

What a great experience Marcy. Some wonderful shots and I'm sure you saw how difficult it was to get any eye contact at all.

Despite the hardship I'm saying Nat Geo all the way Marcy, I feel like I was there
The "black" bamboo makes the comp ethereal.

Looks a tad damp. You got some nice image out of the wet conditions.

Even with the bad conditions, I'm sure the experience was priceless. A very nice, if wet, set Marcy. The last shot is my pick ~ Ron
