As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m a sucker for waterfall pictures. I love the image of water cascading down a falls — especially if it’s a long exposure so that the water takes on a silky smooth appearance.
Well, if you like waterfalls, then you have to visit Ricketts Glen State Park in Pennsylvania. This park has about twenty waterfalls in it — varying in different types and sizes. Some are straight drops, some tumble gently over rocks and some shoot violently through crevasses formed by the rushing water. There are small falls, such as the Cayuga Falls at 11 feet, while others are huge drops, including the 90-foot drop of the Ganoga Falls. Going there during the autumn, just as the trees were showing off their colors was an even bigger treat.
I spent about eight hours in the park, making a loop along two branches of the river. When I wasn’t busy climbing, I was busy being mesmerized by the beauty of the place. If you like photographing waterfalls, then this place is your dream come true.
It’s going to be a few days before I have all my shots edited, but for now, here are two of the shots I have. This first one is of Cayuga Falls. The drop here is 11 feet.
This one is a part of Mohawk Falls. In total, Mohawk Falls are 37 feet.
I plan to have more images from both Ricketts Glen and Macedonia Brook State Park up next week, as well as, perhaps, some shots from my upcoming photo walk in Central Park on Sunday.
