Artist's Description

This natural landmark is located a short distance upstream from the central Waters Meet Point in Ricketts Glen. It is deep in the middle of the sprawling Wilderness Area, on the Glen Leigh Trail. A very harsh winter had completely encapsulated the B. Reynolds waterfall in a thick coating of ice and snow. The falls were so totally frozen that it was strangely silent here, with not even a hint of the usual sounds of rushing water that would normally accompany this forest waterfall view.

Ricketts Glen State Park wilderness area can be found at the junction of RT-118 and RT 487 in north eastern Pennsylvania, USA. Red Rock is the nearest town, which is half way between Hughesville and Wilkes Barre, PA.

This photo was taken on March 3nd, 2015 at noon, on a winter hike through Ricketts. The image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D DSLR camera, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at the 17mm focal length. The shutter speed was 1/60th sec at f/7. The camera’s ISO was set to 100.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.
