More Moss And Autumn Leaves Than Water by 


When I arrived here, I was a bit surprised to see just how little water was running over the falls. This area had gone for weeks without any rain. That had dramatically lowered the water levels in Kitchen Creek. It was very interesting to see all of the moss that is usually hidden under swiftly flowing whitewater. I was able to shoot from a different angle to capture Mohawk from a fresh perspective.

Mohawk Falls is the first waterfall you will encounter, if you begin your hike from the top of the Ganoga Glen Gorge in Ricketts Glen State Park. This beautiful wilderness site is not too far from the enlarged Lake Rose parking area.

This photograph was captured on Monday, October 4th, 2013, on a solo autumn hike through Ricketts Glen. The shot was captured with a Canon EOS 5D camera through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens, at the 17mm focal length. The shutter speed was 1.6 seconds at f/15, ISo 100. A 77mm ND-8 Neutral Density filter was mounted on the lens. The camera was securely mounted on a Manfrotto 055CLB tripod with a Manfrotto 222 “Pistol Grip” head. A remote shutter release cable was also used. This photograph is presented “as-is”, straight from the camera.

Ricketts Glen State Park is located at the junction of RT-118 and RT 487 in Fairmount Township, Pennsylvania, USA. The nearest town is Red Rock, PA, about half way between Williamsport and Wilkes Barre, PA.

I have written a RedBubble Journal that explains exactly how I photograph waterfalls, titled “Some Tips for “Smoother” Waterfall Photos”.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    So neat Gene, but I think this tropical storm might bring some rain for you! enjoy! :O)))

  • Thank you very kindly, Linda! Yes, we are supposed to see lots of rain on Monday. I thought about waiting until next week for my trip to Ricketts Glen, so there would be a better flow at the falls. The leaves are dropping so fast here that I decided to get out before the fall colors were gone.

    Best wishes,

    Gene
