Lehigh Gorge State Park PA – Mossy Glen

This is an area inside Lehigh Gorge State Park, Pennsylvania that I have named “Mossy Glen”. A wonderful secluded spot with moss covered rocks as far as you can see, gentle running water always running around and over them. I visit this spot fairly often.

Tech Specs: Canon 6D and Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens, tripod mounted, 5 and 10 second exposures at ISO 100, f/16 and 17mm. Photographed on April 3, 2017.

Lehigh Gorge State Park, PA.

I would love to see this intermittent waterfall in Lehigh Gorge State Park, Pennsylvania at full flow, it would be awesome! This one is roughly 10-12 feet tall and twice as wide as shown. The next step is to explore the terrace above this one.  

Tech Specs: Canon 6D and Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens, tripod mounted, 4 and 10 second exposures at ISO 100, f/16 and 17mm. Photographed on April 3, 2017.

Bittersweet Nightshade

From Wikipedia – Solanum dulcamara has been valued by herbalists since ancient Greek times. In the Middle Ages the plant was thought to be effective against witchcraft, and was sometimes hung around the neck of cattle to protect them from the “evil eye“.
