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.
