I had my camera on a tripod set up by the river's edge when a whirlwind whipped through and tilted over my camera. The rocks took out the lens hood, broke the filter ring and the focus ring is now locked up at infinity. There's a chip in the glass, too. I had it taking a shot every 10 seconds and after about 30 minutes I noticed the tripod was no longer standing. I'm so glad that the camera did not fall into the river. Sigma 10-20mm 1:4-5.6 HSM, rest in pieces.
