This photo was captured in the evening of October 18th, 2011 after sunset. The shot was taken with a Canon 30D DSLR, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at the 17mm focal length. The exposure was .8 seconds @ f/9. The camera’s ISO was set to 125. A ND-4 “Neutral Density” filter was used with a circular polarizer stacked in front. The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto tripod, with a Manfrotto 222 Pistol Grip head. A remote shutter release cable was also used.
By the time I arrived at Huron Falls, the sun had just dropped behind the ridge, leaving the soft illumination of autumn twilight over this waterfall landscape. Many things had changed in Ricketts Glen since my last visit here, but the fallen tree in the middle of Huron hadn’t budged an inch.
The Huron Waterfall is positioned just below the plunge pool of Shawnee Falls, which is just a few dozen steps upstream along the Glen Leigh Trail in Ricketts Glen State Park. With three more waterfalls yet to visit on this hike, I had to move on pretty quickly, before it got too dark to capture the rest of the sites I had planned for this trip.
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.
