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.
