Tour Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania with David Long for a weekend of waterfall photography and foliage displays.

Join David for a weekend workshop in one of the most beautiful places to photograph on the East coast. Here you will find how the two branches of Kitchen Creek have created 22 spectacular waterfalls that range from 10 to 90 feet set in a deep gorge. The 3.2-mile hike up and down the gorge is made easier by beautiful stone paths and stairs that allow easy walking and shots from almost any angle.  The foliage displays in late October provide a spectacular setting and the flow of water is perfect to produce silky cascades that are sure to make your portfolio and become photo competition winners.
