The photo was taken on a winter hike through Ricketts Glen. It was shot with a Canon EOS 10D DSLR camera, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at the 29mm focal length. The shutter speed was 1/60th sec at f/8. The camera’s ISO was 200. A light Bilora Super-Biloret tripod was used with a Bogen head. A remote shutter release cable was also employed.
This winter view is from the “Waters Meet” point in Ricketts Glen State Park. The two branches of Kitchen Creek join together here, hence the name. It is also where the Ganoga Glen and Glen Leigh trails converge.
You are looking straight up Glen Leigh in this photo. With no foliage on the winter trees, you can clearly see the first three waterfalls along the Glen Leigh trail.
Closest to the viewer, we find unnamed falls, where the Glen Leigh branch empties directly into the main stem of Kitchen Creek. A little above that is the Wyandot waterfall, just below the footbridge that crosses the gorge. At the top of the photo is B. Reynolds falls, which was still covered in ice when this image was captured.
Please, use “View Larger” for this one!
Ricketts Glen 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 the cities of Williamsport and Wilkes Barre.
