Artist's Description

The atmosphere was so perfectly clear that the sky appeared to be the deepest shade of blue ever. Totally unfiltered sunlight was shining down directly on Ozone Falls and Kitchen Creek in Ricketts Glen.

It is usually preferable to try to shoot waterfalls on days when the light isn’t quite as intense as this. However, the flawless early spring morning seemed just right for shooting this site in all its radiant glory.

This photo was captured during a hike through Ricketts Glen State Park with Tim Devine and Kevin Hart. We also met Aaron Campbell and his friend “Swisheroo” near this site. They were hiking in the other direction on the Glen Leigh trail.

This image of Ozone Falls was captured on May 10th, 2011. It was taken with a Canon 10D DSLR, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens, at the 17mm focal length. The aperture was f/19 with a 1/6th second shutter speed at ISO 100. An ND8 “Neutral Density” filter was mounted on the lens with a Circular Polarizer in front. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release.

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

Ozone falls is located in the Glen Leigh gorge. It is the fourth named waterfall above the “Waters Meet” point in Ricketts Glen.
