Going for the lowest possible point-of-view can be a bit uncomfortable, and sometimes you can get a little wet. However, to end up with this kind of photograph, it can be rewarding …way beyond the temporary discomfort experienced while capturing the shot. Yea, I have to admit it, I’m really happy with this shot. I hope you like it too.
I had the great pleasure of enjoying this fantastic wilderness park with a great bunch of RedBubblers from the “Welcome Pennsylvania” group. A good time was enjoyed by all of the group members I had the pleasure of meeting here!
It had been a mostly overcast, but extremely pleasant spring day here in north east PA. The shot was taken in the Leigh Glen branch of Kitchen Creek, just downstream from Seneca Falls.
This photograph was captured with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens on a Canon EOS 10D DSLR body. The aperture was set to f/19, shutter speed 1/3rd second at the 17mm focal length. The camera’s ISO was set to 200.
I have written a RedBubble Journal that explains exactly how I photograph waterfalls, titled “Some Tricks for Better Waterfall Photos”.
Ricketts Glen State Park Park is located in Fairmount Township, near Red Rock, Pennsylvania, along RT-118.
