2014 Begins At Adams Falls
Photograph - Photograph
Today, with a major snowstorm well under weigh, I just had to stop at Adams Falls in Ricketts Glen. I had a delivery to make in this area ...so of course, I took my camera and crampons along on the trip. I wanted to hike up through Ricketts Glen, but the snow started coming down so heavily that I decided to put off the rest of my winter shoot until it becomes safer for traveling.
This image was shot with a Canon 5D DSLR camera body, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens, at the 17mm Ultra-Wide focal length. The aperture was set to f/16 with a 4.0 second exposure. The ISO was set to 100. A Manfrotto tripod and pistol grip head were used with a remote shutter release cable.
Adams is the first waterfall at the very bottom of the gorge in Ricketts Glen, just over the hill from the Evergreen Parking Area, which was closed for the winter months.
Ricketts Glen is located at the junction of RT-118 and RT 487 in Fairmount Township, Pennsylvania, USA. This is about half way between Williamsport and Wilkes Barre, PA.
