"People of the Place of Flint", Mohawk Falls, Rickett's Glen State Park, Pennsylvania

Just a quick picture to post for tonight. This image is of Mohawk Falls in Rickett's Glen State Park, Pennsylvania. One of the first of 22 named waterfalls along one of the park's relatively short hiking trails. That's right, 22 substantial waterfalls! This place rocks. A photographer's paradise. During my quick visit, dusk was quickly approaching. Using the "shade" of dusk, I was able to shoot on what would have been a bright and sunny day without capturing distracting shadows. Additionally, I was able to control the contrast found within this scene, from bright highlights in the water to dark shadows within the crevices of the rocks. In bright sun, this is simply not possible without taking several exposures and blending them together in Photoshop.
