Spring Green Emerges At Sheldon Reynolds Waterfall by 


The fast moving waters of Kitchen Creek were running crystal clear on this perfect May evening. New foliage was starting to “spring up”, especially here, at the lower end of the gorge in Ricketts Glen.

With the lengthening shadows of day’s end, the face of the waterfall was finally free of direct sunlight. Bright sun and harsh shadows had always made this site a real challenge to photograph properly. This was just the right time, on a gorgeous spring evening, to capture the true beauty of Sheldon Reynolds Falls.

The photo was captured on May 10th, 2011, during a “meet & shoot” hike through Ricketts Glen State Park with RedBubblers Tim Devine and Kevin Hart.

This image of Sheldon Reynolds Waterfall was captured with a Canon 10D DSLR, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens, at the 30mm focal length. The aperture was f/11 with a .3 second shutter speed at ISO 100. A Manfrotto tripod and pistol grip head were used with a remote shutter release.

The image is presented exactly “as-is”. It was simply converted to jpeg from the camera RAW file in Photoshop CS2. No cropping, enhancements or alterations were applied to this photograph.

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. Sheldon Reynolds is the second waterfall on the trail from RT-118, at the bottom of the glen.

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.

    Not only an appealing (and good) composition, Gene, but chlorophyll! And I love the light at the top through the trees.

  • Thank you very much, Jan! We finally (…for our area, anyway) got a break from the constant rains and were rewarded with a few sunny days. I was there a couple weeks ago, and there was very little green to be found, except for the evergreen trees. Everything is coming alive in the glen now. It was great to be out hiking in a T-shirt again!

    Kindest regards,

    Gene

    Beautiful Gene, wish I could have stayed around longer!

  • It would have been nice if you could have hung around a bit longer. The light got a little better when the upper atmosphere became surprisingly hazy …but that wasn’t until well after 5 O’clock.

    I’ll be watching for your photos.

    Best regards,

    This looks like such a beautiful place. Wish I could see it someday. Beautiful images Gene!

  • Thank you very kindly, Barbara! This is definitely in the top three of my favorite places to visit on earth. With 22 major waterfalls, that can all be enjoyed during a single day hike, Ricketts Glen is a treasure trove for waterfall junkies like me.

    Best wishes,
