Artist's Description

The appearance of waterfall sites can change a lot from year to year, especially when there have been months of record breaking rainfall. In 2011, Ricketts Glen State Park has seen the highest precipitation levels ever measured in a single year, for as long as official rain and snowfall records have been kept.

There had been two fallen trees, one on each side of this spillway, for as long as I have been enjoying this beautiful landmark. This visit reveals that both of the dead trees have been washed away since the last time I was here in the spring. Only the bottom half of the tree, that had been leaning against the right side of the falls, remains on the hillside above the waterfall.

This photograph was captured on Tuesday, October 18th, 2011. It was taken with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens on a Canon EOS 10D DSLR body. The aperture was set to f/16, shutter speed 0.8 seconds at the 35mm focal length. The camera’s ISO setting was set to 125.

Wyandot Waterfall, as it Looked Last Spring

I have written a RedBubble Journal that explains exactly how I photograph waterfalls, titled “Some Tricks for Better Waterfall Photos”.

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. Wyandot Falls is located just upstream from the “Waters Meet” point, on the Glen Liegh trail.
