heading to bushkill falls today.. hopefully it wont rain on us. we will be taking lots of pictures but since this older computer we have in nepa is far behind the times we are unable to do much processing of the photos so we wont be able to post them until next week when we get home.

it looks like photography heaven there... hopefully we can get some good high dynamic range photos... i love working with them as the possibilites are only bounded by your creativity. you can range the look from a regular snap shot to borderline art. the key is to get at least 3 pictures, each with perfect exposures in different parts of the tonal range and then combining all 3 taking the best range of each.

if anyone is interested in getting started taking hdr photos you need nothing more than a digital camera capable of taking high resolution shots with the ability to use not auto mode but aperture priority mode. if your camera has an auto bracketing feature so much the better ,,, then download the free trial ofthe software that does the magic ... be prepared to spend hours playing. its addictive




HDR photo software & plugin - Tone Mapping, Exposure Blending & HDR Imaging for photography

thanks for the photography tips....let us know how Bushkill Falls is. My in-laws honeymooned there...oh about 51 years ago and my MIL keeps "suggesting" that we take the kids there for something to do.

If there arent' rides or a playground, they'll be bored I think...we'll see..


Let us know how your day goes. Have fun...

Mathjak, if you and the better half are somewhat experienced hikers may I suggest the Falls Trail at Ricketts Glen State Park, northwest of Wilkes-Barre, to you? My partner and I hiked for 7.5 miles yesterday and were mesmerized by every waterfall, especially the 94' Ganoga Falls. Bushkill Falls just honestly can't compare to Ricketts Glen, in my personal opinion. I plan to head back out soon with the camera to post a Ricketts Glen Photo Tour that will include the waterfalls, gorges, Lake Jean, and perhaps even some of the little sights around Red Rock.

it was a nice little hike, except for the falls themselves and there are 8 but most are small , we didnt find that much to photograph.

the red trail which is the longer 2 mile one has quite alot of stair climbing as the trail for most of the way are layed out as stairs. parts are real rocky so where sneakers or hiking boots. we are in good shape so we didnt mind the climbing but everywhere you could hear people grumbling about the terrain.


heres a tip, if you do the 2 mile red trail go counter clockwise. the climbs are a little more subdued. bring bug spray and bring water...

we will post the pics next week

i already accidently deleted one of the memory cards
