It was getting late and I was still less than half way through Ricketts Glen at this point. I was rushing back upstream to begin shooting all of the waterfalls on the eastern branch of Kitchen Creek (I had already completed all of the Ganoga Glen shots). However, when I approached this leaf covered stretch of the lower Falls Trail, I just had to stop to catch one quick shot of this wonderful autumn view. This spot is located just below to the Waters Meet point.
This photograph is “straight from the camera”, untouched. It was simply converted from RAW format to JPEG in Photoshop, without any enhancements or alterations.
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 shutter speed was 1.3 seconds @ f/13. The camera’s ISO was set to 125. 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 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.
