We first visited Ricketts Glen State Park earlier this year in August. Although that visit was aimed at completing the Falls Trail – a 5mi loop that takes you along roughly 20 waterfalls – I still brought my camera along. The trail is easily among the most beautiful in the region. A little into the hike, I was convinced that I’d visit the park again in a few months for some fall photography, and the hike became a scouting trip of sorts.
That fall photography trip to Ricketts Glen materialized in mid-October. This time I was better prepared – a tripod, a sharper lens and a rough plan of the waterfalls to photograph.
Here are three waterfalls that I photographed both times. In each case, the first photograph is from August and the next from October. Despite the fall colors not being great this year, I like the way the photos came out.
