Artist's Description

The freezing waters of Kitchen Creek flow briskly under the footbridge on Glen Leigh Trail, just before splashing over the Wyandot Waterfall. A portion of R. B. Ricketts Falls can be seen in the background from this point, just a short distance upstream from the central gathering spot called “Waters Meet” This is the first named waterfall from the bottom of the Glen Leigh gorge.

The image was captured in the early afternoon of New Years Eve, with a Canon 5D Full Frame DSLR camera. It was shot through Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L professional lens. The focal length was set to 29mm. The shutter speed was 1/13th of a second @ f/16. The camera’s ISO was set to 100. The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto tripod, with a Manfrotto 222 Pistol Grip head. A remote shutter release cable and hot shoe mounted bubble level were also used.

This series of Ricketts Glen waterfall photographs were captured on December 31st, 2012, during an 8 hour winter hike & shoot with photographer Mark Van Scyoc. Twelve of the twenty-two famous “named” waterfalls in the park were visited during this trip.

Ricketts Glen is located near the small rural 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.

WARNING: Ricketts Glen waterfall trails are extremely dangerous in the winter months! They are closed to the public from late November unit spring. Winter hiking is only permitted if you are a well-equipped hiker with previous icy condition hiking or climbing experience. Each climber must register and sign in before entering the trails and must also sign out after the hike. Crampons, Ice axes and climbing ropes are absolutely required. This is NOT just a “walk in the park”.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.
