Winter View of Sheldon Reynolds Falls by 

Sheldon Reynolds is the second named waterfall along the lower Falls Trail in Ricketts Glen. It’s about one and a half miles from the RT-118 parking area.

Winter conditions allowed a different point of view here, due to the frozen creek and lack of foliage to block this “straight on” shot. This was the final frame that I captured while at this site. After a very close look, I felt I needed to add this additional view to my portfolio. To say it more simply, I think this may be a better photograph of this waterfall than my first attempt.

Ricketts Glen State Park is primarily located north of Route 118 and east of Route 487, in Fairmount Township, Pennsylvania, USA. The nearest town is Red Rock, PA. This very large state wilderness area is about half way between the cities of Williamsport and Wilkes Barre.

This photo was taken on March 2nd, 2011 on a winter hike with Kevin Hart. It was shot with a Canon EOS 10D DSLR camera, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at the 23mm focal length. The shutter speed was 1/30th sec at f/16. The camera’s ISO was 400. A Bilora Super-Biloret tripod was used with a Bogen head. A remote shutter release cable was also employed.

This photo is untouched, straight from the camera.

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.

    Ya, very nice perspective. I really LOVE the wide angle here, it’s a lovely capture of how perfect and calm that day really was… ideal for hiking. Also a nice recording of the obvious changing of the seasons. Great shot, and good, carefully considered composition. I like how this came out!!

  • Thanks, Kevin! One problem, though …I accidentally uploaded a different photo of Harrison Wright …sorry! That image will actually be posted tomorrow.

    The correct Sheldon Reynolds photo that I had described is shown here now.

    Kindest regards,

    I wouldn’t be too sure about that Last Winter business. What did you get yesterday? Thunder & lightning?? We had snow & sleet, brisk wind & cold, but nothing too daunting… except that it WAS March 23rd. This is a beautiful shot what ever it may be!!

  • Thanks, Sheila! We got some of everything that can fall from the sky …except for fire, I guess. Na, I was referring to my last view here with snow on the ground, before I go back in April or May. I’m sure there is plenty of snow in Ricketts Glen today.

    Kindest wishes,

    Here in Western NY we are hoping that winter end by May (lol). Congratulations on a clean, crisp, and clear shot of one of the beauties of nature. Well done Gene.

  • Thank you very much, Dave! We’re hoping for the same thing here. We got everything from thundersnow to plain rain and sleet yesterday. I’ve seen enough of the white stuff already …I’m ready for spring.

    Best wishes,

    Gene, you may not have seen the LAST! Wait, they would be snowy Sping views!! Nicely done! – John

  • Yes, if I was going to take a trip there today, you would be correct. However, I think I’ll wait for the blossoms to start showing until I go back again. LOL Although, I still could get some “snow on the blossoms” shots there anyway. Snow is not that uncommon there, even in late April.

    Thank you very much, John!
