There are 22 “named” waterfalls in Ricketts Glen. If you follow the flow of Kitchen Creek from the top of the gorge, the trek will eventually bring you to this point …the last waterfall plunge pool in the glen. You are viewing the bottom section of Adams Falls, at the southern-most point in Ricketts Glen State Park.

This composite image was captured with a Canon 30D DSLR camera body through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens that was set to the 17mm focal length. A 555 Manfrotto tripod and 222 pistol grip head were used with a remote shutter release cable. Three separate exposures were merged in Photomatix Pro v4.1 to reveal the finished image. The aperture was f/6.3 with 0.3, 0.8 and 1.0 second exposures. The total exposure time of the finished image was 2.1 seconds. The camera’s ISO was set to 100 for all exposures.

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.
