Tuscarora Falls

I took this photo of Tuscarora Falls at Ricketts Glen State Park in Benton, Pennsylvania last summer. For obvious reasons, this is my favorite place to visit in the state. I have several other photos from this same location here. This waterfall was one of many located along a hiking trial in the park. Generally, the trail takes forever to hike, not because of the length, but because of all the stops. Every couple minutes I felt like I stopped and pulled out my camera.

During my first visit, I arrived too late in the day and could only hike half the trail. However, this time I completed the whole trail and ran into Tuscarora Falls. This waterfall had the perfect viewpoint for taking pictures and the weather was supreme. Both times I visited this park, it had just rained and the forecast was clouds all day. Fortunately, that weather is the best for waterfalls. The filtered light makes for less harsh shadows and better overall visibility in the photograph.

I took this shot with my 32mm wide angle lens at f/16 and 3/5 a second. Also, I did almost all the post-processing in Lightroom and only touched the finer details in Photoshop. Let me know if you have any questions. Hope you like the results.
