Ricketts Glen Stepped Waterfall by 

The “dog days” of summer were providing only a bit more than a trickle at the F. L. Ricketts cascading waterfall on this very hot August day.

This is Ricketts Glen State Park, located along Route 118 in north eastern Pennsylvania, near the small town of Red Rocks. It is a wonderful park with excellent hiking trails through the forest that pass by many beautiful waterfalls along the way.

This shot was captured on August 13th, 2006 with a Canon EOS 10D camera body with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Ultra-Wide Angle lens, zoomed to the widest setting. Exposure was 1/10th sec. @ f/8. The camera’s ISO setting was 100. A tripod was used with a remote shutter release.

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.

    Wonderful capture, the water looks so beautiful.

  • Thanks, Joy! I wanted to do a longer exposure to smooth out the motion of the water, but I didn’t have an appropriate NG filter with me at the time. I am so pleased that you feel that the water exposure looks OK. I really appreciate your very kind comment!

    Best wishes,

    Very nice, looks refreshing

  • Thanks a lot, Mike! It’s always a few degrees cooler up there, very refreshing. Although, this year they are calling this “the summer without a summer” around here. It has been very wet and cool all season. I guess you guys are roasting a bit more that usual in the south west. That’s weather, huh.

    Beautiful work and I will be visiting there soon.

  • Thanks, Big D! I’m sure you will really like Ricketts Glen. It’s an excellent park for hiking. Be sure to wear you best hiking boots, it’s got some really steep areas around the biggest falls.
