1 Lens hood
A lens hood will guard your lens against spray from the waterfall. Coming from all angles as the wind whips and changes, your Nikon will be covered in a fine mist, so using a lens hood will prevent this from getting on the glass and causing wet spots to ruin your image.
2 Microfibre cloth
Your lens hood may do a good job, but you’re bound to get a wet front element. A microfibre cloth is the perfect companion. You can pick them up cheaply and they will soak up the moisture on your lens to leave it streak-free.
3 Lens cover
Sometimes, when near particularly fierce falls or on a windy day, even a lens hood and microfibre cloth can’t totally prevent your lens from getting a little wet in between exposures. If so, then cover up your lens between shots either using your hand or the lens cap.
