The “Waters Meet” Point is the central hub for the three main hiking trails in the falls section of Ricketts Glen State Park. I arrived here while the sun was still behind the ridge was casting a shadow over the spot where the two branches of Kitchen Creek converge. You are looking up the Glen Leigh trail, where the Wyandot waterall and the wooden footbridge above the falls are clearly visible in the distance. Bright sunshine was highlighting the trail and the beautiful fall foliage up the glen.

The photo was captured on October 18th, 2011. The shot was taken with a Canon 30D DSLR, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at the 26mm focal length. The exposure time was 1/4th second @ f/7.1. The camera’s ISO was set to 125. A ND-4 “Neutral Density” filter was used, combined with a Circular Polarizer that was stacked in front. The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto tripod, with a Manfrotto 222 Pistol Grip head. A remote shutter release cable was also used.

Ricketts Glen is located near the village of Red Rock, PA, at the junction of Pennsylvania Routes 118 and 487. The Glen is about half way between Williamsport and Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania, in the north eastern USA.

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.

    Ohhh, I really like the light in this one.. all details preserved in the foreground, with the lines (and the light) drawing the viewer deeper into the scene. Great autumn shot!

  • Thanks a lot, Kevin! I waited for a long time, hoping that a stray cloud would drift overhead, but that never happened. So, I just took the shot with the bright sunlight shining and crossed my fingers. I was determined to get at least one “postable” shot from every stop I made. I almost got them all, but I had to skip three, it actually got dark before I made it out of the woods. I gave it my best attempt, though.

    Best regards,

    Gene
