Harrison Wright is a waterfall that actually produces it’s own local weather. Even on a dead calm summer day, there is always a misty wind blowing below the falls here. On a hot day, this cool damp breeze provides a wonderfully refreshing spray. However, in late winter, not so much.

I needed to wipe the water droplets off of my lens before nearly every shot that I took from this location. It was so nice to be able to shoot from this temporarily frozen platform over Kitchen Creek. The damp wind was not really a problem at all. This is my second winter capture from this site, from a slightly closer perspective.

Harrison Wright is the third waterfall up the Falls Trail, about one and seven tenths miles from the parking area on RT-118. Ricketts Glen State Park is located beside the junction of RT-118 and RT 487 in Fairmount Township, Pennsylvania, USA. The nearest town is Red Rock, about half way between the cities of Williamsport and Wilkes Barre, PA.

This photo was taken on the morning of 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 19mm focal length. The shutter speed was 1/90th sec at f/8. 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.

FEATURED in “The World As We See It…”

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.

    Beautiful Gene, love the blue sky peeking through the trees!

  • Thanks a bunch, Tim! The clouds were extremely helpful that day (as you know so well) …and the deep blue sky was like sweet icing on the cake. Here we find the falls under a cloud shadow, but the pretty sky above.

    I wish I could have captured the “look” of the heavy mist a bit better. When the sun came back out, there was a really nice rainbow here.

    Kindest regards,

    Gene

    Is this the shot I saw yesterday? I love it, either way! The exposure is great and I just love how wide the view is! (As I’m sure I said yesterday.) Great shot of one of my favorite falls! :)

  • Thanks, Kevin! Yes, this is the shot that I uploaded by mistake yesterday. I hadn’t done any processing to the photo last night, but now it’s done. It just needed a little adjustment of the exposure levels.

    Best wishes,

    Gene

    Great shot Gene!! Looks cold but beautiful!!

  • Thank you very much, Carolyn! It was both, totally beautiful, but not too terrible cold. I warmed back up as soon as I got out of the spray and started climbing up through the glen again.

    Kindest regards,

    Beautiful composition, lighting and all the rest! Well done, sir!! – John

  • Many thanks, John! I was luck to catch the blue patch of sky here, with all the clouds that were drifting overhead. Cloud shadows were responsible for the unusual lighting.

    Kindest regards,
