Photo Of The Day By Bill Sisson

Today’s Photo of the Day is “Ricketts Glen” by Bill Sisson. Location: Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania.

“Ricketts Glen State Park in Pennsylvania features more than 20 waterfalls scattered along hiking trails,” says Sisson. “To capture this image, I had to place my camera about 18 inches above the water. The low camera placement is essential to hiding a footbridge that’s just behind the top of the waterfall. The low angle also helps emphasize the white water in the foreground. In shooting waterfalls in Pennsylvania, I often try to have an eye-catching foreground with lines leading to the waterfall in the mid-ground and trees in the background. This is a two-exposure blend. I took a 30-second exposure for the falls and white water to draw out the lines in the white water. I used a 5-second exposure for the trees to deal with a slight breeze ruffling the leaves.”
