A Scene Along Jeanes Run, Carbon County, Pennsylvania

Here is a view taken above the last waterfall on Jeanes Run, Carbon County, Pennsylvania looking downstream. Recent flows have been great with snow/ice melt combining with some recent rainfall.

Tech Specs: Canon 6D and Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens, tripod mounted, 1/5 and 2.5 second exposures at ISO 100, f/20 and 17mm. Photographed on April 8, 2017.

Jeans Run, Waterfall #4, Carbon County Pennsylvania

Here is an image of waterfall #4 on Jeans Run, Carbon County, Pennsylvania that I snapped back on March 12th. No real good angle to get to this one, it also required several mixed exposures to capture the shaded areas and tone down the overexposed pieces.

Jeans Run, Carbon County, Pennsylvania – Waterfall #4.

Tech Spec: Photographed on March 12, 2016 using my trusty Canon 6D, Canon EF17-40mm f/4L USM lens, three exposures from ½ second to 8 seconds using a #8 neutral density filter.

The Science: There is no standard way to classify a waterfall, some people classify them by width, drop and in some cases volume of water. Some of the most often used terms include cascade, horsetail and plunge. This waterfall would be best categorized by cascade (a waterfall that descends over a series of steps – take a close look at the image). A horsetail waterfall maintains contact with the rock underneath as it falls and a plunge waterfall loses that contact with the underlying rock and free falls.
