This gorgeous waterfall was creating its own local weather! It was a very hot and perfectly calm day… there was not so much as a gentle breeze in the air. As soon as I approached these roaring falls, there was a very steady wind, filled with a wonderful cooling spray. The large tree stump in the foreground and all the surrounding boulders were covered in thick moss, obviously sustained by the constant mist.
The photo was captured in Ricketts Glen State Park in north east Pennsylvania, USA on August 15th, 2009 at 1:41 pm. Ricketts Glen is located along State Rt 118, near the town of Red Rock.
The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L zoom lens set to 35mm. The shutter speed was 1/2 sec. at f/22. The camera’s ISO was set to 100.
