This is the B. Reynolds Waterfall, the second big falls along the Glen Leigh trail in Ricketts Glen State Park. It can be seen from the “Waters Meet” point.
The trees were beginning to show their fall colors here, in early October. Some of the very first turned leaves had begun falling to the forest floor and, as you can see, onto the boulders in Kitchen Creek.
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/11, shutter speed was 1/2 second at the 17mm focal length. The camera’s ISO setting was 100. I just found two autumn photos from this hike that I had never posted on RedBubble.
This puts me another step closer to completing a full set of photographs of all of the waterfalls in Ricketts Glen, each captured in all four seasons.
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.
