October Evening Below Ozone Falls by

Ozone Falls was named after a hiking organization of the same name that was based in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. With a drop of sixty feet, this is the second tallest waterfall in all of Ricketts Glen State Park. I arrived here as the sun was very quickly disappearing behind the ridge.

This photo was captured on the evening of October 18th, 2011, just before sunset. The shot was taken with a Canon 30D DSLR, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at the 17mm focal length. Exposure time was 8 full 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 located 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.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.

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.

    Lovely, well gorgeous actually!

  • Thanks, Glenn! I wish I could have gone back there today to shoot the falls in the snow. We never even got a chance to rake our leaves before the snow started falling. Our maples still have most of their leaves, and most of them are still green! Imagine that! I guess the kids will be out trick or treating on skis this year.

    Kindest regards,
