Glen Leigh View From "Waters Meet" by 


The point where the two branches of Kitchen Creek converge in Ricketts Glen State Park is named “Waters Meet”. I jumped off of the stone retaining wall and captured the upstream view of the Glen Leigh branch of the stream. The waterfall off in the distance is Wyandot Falls.

This is the cover image for my calendar titled “The Waterfalls of Ricketts Glen”

This photograph was captured on Monday, May 17th, 2010, on a meet & shoot event with members of the “Welcome Pennsylvania” RedBubble group. It was taken with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens on a Canon EOS 10D DSLR body. The aperture was set to f/16, shutter speed 1/4th second at the 40mm focal length. The camera’s ISO setting was set to 200.

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.

  • Ricketts Glens is so nice, it deserves to be called “marvellous” twice (or even thrice)! LOL

    Great shot Gene, just to the left of that branch in the water is the fern and violets that you see in my Wildflowers at Waters Meet shot.

  • Thanks, Tim! I really wondered where you had found that shot at Waters Meet with the violets in the foreground. I’m glad you mentioned where it was!

    All my best,
