Along the Turkey Path in Tioga County Pennsylvania

A beautiful scene along the Turkey Path Trail in Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Cascade waterfalls stacked one on the other with good water flow. I half expected to see a tree start walking or a hobbit run across the stream.

Tech Specs: Canon 6D and Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens, tripod mounted, single 8 second exposures at ISO 100, f/20 and 17mm. Photographed on April 29, 2017.

The River Otter in Northeast Pennsylvania

I was lucky enough to capture six images of a River Otter scurrying from the woodline into a local wetland in Monroe County, Pennsylvania recently. I’ve seen the telltale signs of the river otter for a few years, including the obvious scat and paw prints, this is the first time I have managed to capture a few images.

Tech Specs: Canon 6D, Canon EF70-200mm f/2.8L USM Lens + 2x III converter, ISO 2500, 1/1000 second exposure at F/10 and 195mm, hand-held. Date: April 18, 2017. Location: Monroe County, Pennsylvania.

Intermittent Cascade Waterfall in Lehigh Gorge State Park Pennsylvania

Here is another beautiful intermittent waterfall in Lehigh Gorge State Park in Pennsylvania. It can almost be mistaken for a tropical location, don’t you think? Heavily influenced by recent rainfall and snow melt, this is the best I have seen this particular 10-12 foot cascade waterfall in a few years. There are several terraces to this series, you can barely make out the one above it.  

Tech Specs: Canon 6D and Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens, tripod mounted, 1.6 and 8 second exposures at ISO 100, f/16 and 17mm. Photographed on April 3, 2017.

Colton Point State Park – Pennsylvania

This will be an open blog entry featuring photographs of Colton Point State Park in Pennsylvania.  Comments appreciated.
Colton Point SP1

Nice little cascade waterfall on Fourmile Run in Colton Point State Park, Pennsylvania. Taken on September 4, 2016, water levels were extremely low. Tech Specs: Canon 6D, Canon EF17-40mm f/4L USM lens, HDR image of 1.6 and 6 seconds at ISO 500 and f/20.

 
History: The park is named for Henry Colton, a Williamsport lumberman who cut timber there starting in 1879. Although the Pine Creek Gorge was clearcut in the 19th and early 20th centuries, it is now covered by second-growth forest, thanks in part to the conservation efforts of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s. The CCC built the facilities at Colton Point before and shortly after the park’s 1936 opening. Most of the CCC-built facilities remain in use, and have led to the park’s listing as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places.

Looking forward to a return trip later this fall or in the spring for better water flow conditions. Tech Specs: Canon 6D, Canon EF17-40mm f/4L USM lens, #8 neutral density filter, tripod mounted. Settings were ISO 500, 8 seconds and 2 seconds, f/20, 17mm. Imaging Date: September 4, 2016.
