R. B. Ricketts falls is one of the most beautiful sites in this amazing protected wilderness area know as Ricketts Glen. The sky was crystal clear and the deepest blue ever. New spring leaves were just starting to show on the surrounding trees, with that bright green color that is reserved for this time of the year. I really enjoy the view I see from under the huge fallen tree that appears in many of the photos of this area. I setup my tripod directly under the big log that is shown in the additional photo below:

Overall View of R B Ricketts Falls

Ricketts Glen State Park is located beside the junction of RT-118 and RT 487 in Fairmount Township, Pennsylvania, USA. The nearest town is Red Rock, about half way between the cities of Williamsport and Wilkes Barre, PA.

R. B. Ricketts Falls is the third named waterfall above the Waters Meet point, on the Glen Leigh Trail.

This photo was captured on May 10th, 2011, during a “meet & shoot” hike through Ricketts Glen State Park with RedBubblers Tim Devine and Kevin Hart.

This image was shot with a Canon 10D DSLR, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens, at the widest focal length of 17mm. A ND4 neutral density filter was “stacked” on the lens, with a circular polarizing filter in front. The aperture was set to f/19. Three bracketed exposures were shot with an average shutter speed of 1/2 second at ISO 100.

The bracketed exposures were processed in Photomatix Pro 3.2 to reveal the full dynamic range of this bright sunlit scene with very dark shadows. A Manfrotto 550B tripod and 222 pistol grip head were used.
