A Touch Of Autumn At Sheldon Reynolds Falls by 


Sheldon Reynolds Falls is the second waterfall you see when you start your hike at the bottom of the gorge in Ricketts Glen State Park. It is a short distance below the point called “Waters Meet” . The water was flowing fast because there had been so much rain the week before our visit.

The lower elevations here were showing very little of the warm fall colors that we usually expect to see in October. The leaves on a couple trees above the falls had just turned a nice bright yellow. Fortunately, one of those trees just happened to catch a flash of sunlight, to make it really stand out in this primarily green scene.

This photograph was captured on Monday, October 11th, 2010, on a meet & shoot event with members of the “Welcome Pennsylvania” RedBubble group. It was taken with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens on a Canon EOS 10D DSLR body. The aperture was set to f/16, shutter speed was .25 seconds at the 19mm focal length. The camera’s ISO setting was 100. I just found that I had never posted this shot on RedBubble. I knew I had taken an autumn photo at this site, so I went looking for it …here it is. Better late than never.

This puts me one step closer to completing a full set of photographs of all of the “named” waterfalls in Ricketts Glen in all four seasons. After three years, that’s 67 of the 88 images needed to complete the project.

I have posted a RedBubble Journal that explains exactly how I approach photographing waterfalls. If you are interested in knowing about my methods and camera settings, please check out “Tips for Waterfall Photos”:http://www.redbubble.com/people/profaudio/journ....

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.

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.

    Still waiting for Spring here, but Autumn never looked better. A beauty, Gene.

  • Thanks, Sheila! We had one real week of spring here …and now it’s back to on & off rain again. We actually had a couple of tornadoes in the county south of us yesterday. No loss of life, but a barn was destroyed and several homes were badly damaged. That’s very unusual in the mountains of PA.

    Kindest regards,

    Gene

    Great capture Gene….always fun to find those overlooked shots from prior expeditions. Love to see the color in those trees!

  • Thank you very much, Tim! I knew I had a fall shot from here, but when I looked for it in my portfolio, I realized that I had never uploaded this one or a I shot at B. Reynolds from the same trip. I’m filling in the seasonal gaps …every RG waterfall, in each season. After three years of shooting, I’m almost there. I should have the project finished sometime next winter. Get your crampons and ice axe ready!

    Best regards,

    Gene
