Wyandot Falls is the very first waterfall at the bottom of the Gen Leigh Trail in Ricketts Glen State Park. This spot is located just a few steps above the “Waters Meet” Point in the middle of the park’s wilderness area.
The photo was captured in the late afternoon on October 18th, 2011. The air was dead calm, perfect for long exposure shots. The photograph was taken with a Canon 30D DSLR, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at the 17mm focal length. The shutter speed was 2 seconds @ f/20. 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.
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.
