I had to track the elusive Photographicus Humanicus for miles to catch this rare creature in his native habitat.
Looking at the expression on Mark’s face, it was obvious that he had just captured a view that he was quite pleased with. His face said, “nailed it!”, but he didn’t actually say a word …being the genuinely humble, but excellent, photographer that he is.
Oh, I should mention that I shot him with his own lens. This candid photo was taken along the Ganoga Glen Trail, a short distance below Mohawk falls, in Ricketts Glen State Park.
By the way, this link will take you to the shot that Mark Van Scyoc was reviewing when I snapped him in action, it’s titled Rushing Waters at Ricketts Glen.
This photograph was captured on Monday, April 25th, 2011 with Mark’s excellent Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens. It was mounted on my Canon EOS 10D DSLR body. The aperture was set to f/4 with a shutter speed 1/4th second at the 70mm focal length. The camera’s ISO setting was 100.
Ricketts Glen State Park 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 Williamsport and Wilkes Barre, PA.
