Harrison Wright is just a short jaunt downstream from the Waters Meet Point in Ricketts Glen State Park in northeastern Pennsylvania, USA. This waterfall has the most spray of any waterfall in Ricketts Glen. The misty spray of the waterfall was highlighted by the fading golden sunlight of the evening.
This is the only waterfall I was able to reach on the lower Glen trail during this trip. I noticed that it was getting way too late to be able to visit the two remaining falls on this trail and still be able to make it out of the woods before nightfall. Right after I snapped this shot, I headed back upstream so I could shoot all of the falls on the Glen Leigh Trail before sunset.
The photo was captured in late afternoon on October 18th, 2011. The shot was taken with a Canon 30D DSLR, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at the 23mm focal length. The exposure time was 1/2 second @ f/9. The camera’s ISO was set to 125. A ND-4 “Neutral Density” filter was used, no CP for this one. The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto tripod, with a Manfrotto 222 Pistol Grip head. A remote shutter release cable was also used. This is a single frame, adjusted in Photmatix Pro 3.2, as a single exposure-compensated shot.
I have written a RedBubble Journal that explains exactly how I photograph waterfalls, titled “Some Tips for Better Waterfall Photos”.
Ricketts Glen is near the small village of Red Rock, PA, at the junction of Pennsylvania State Routes 118 and 487. The park is about midway between Williamsport and Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania, in the north eastern region of the USA.
