Experiment at the Glen

Let me tell you about my weekend ! First of all I went to Ricketts Glen . I was not prepared for what I found .This is on top of all the awe inspiring places I have been for Photography and I have been to a lot .Honestly can almost choke one up at the sheer raw beauty of the place . I will go back in the fall . Even found a neat little bed and breakfast within 4 miles of park , Now the experiment . Really wasnt sure on HDR , normal ,high or low shutter speed(low for that dreamy look) perspective of print ,wide or not. I dont think its HDR because of water movement ,Think I like higher shutter speed for more detail and not wide angle because of height of falls . Boy am I feeling the effects today.Consider myself in good shape for my age but what a workout. Did the whole loop forgetting when you go down first sooner or later after your already wore up you have to go back up . Well worth it though . This is a must see for anyone that ever can go !!The first photo I think is the perspective Im going with . Enjoy !

Re: Experiment at the Glen

I knew we would be seeing these great pics! The Glen is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The best part is, you have only seen a small portion of whats there! Next time pack your favorite energy food or power bars, etc. I am a lifelong hiker, and have found just a short break and some high energy grub makes you feel alot younger on the trail. ( PS When I was a kid we would time one another from the bottom to the top, and there were several times I did the whole path without stopping, but those are memories now !

Re: Experiment at the Glen

I'll have to make a point to get over there and take a walk. Very nice. What lens did you use?

Re: Experiment at the Glen

Excellent, you did great. I'm not real crazy about the faster shutters but I know what you mean about loosing detail with the slower ones. 1/4 sec is about as fast as I typically go.

Nicely done! I have never tried HDR on waterfalls but I will now. I like #6 the most by far.

Re: Experiment at the Glen

Nice pics cf.

Haven't been there since I was a kid. Have checked into going there when everything is frozen but, from what I have read, you need an ice axe and crampons to navigate the trails. Would make for some great pictures though.
