Adams Falls – POTD

After a heavy rain or the spring melt, this rock in the foreground is normally covered in water.  It was relatively dry this weekend allowing for some unique and intimate photo ops.

Adams Falls in Ricketts Glen is the lowest waterfall in the park.  It’s not the smallest drop, it is just the lowest in elevation.  It doesn’t lie on the Falls Loop Trail where the vast majority of the major falls can be found.  It’s actually quite easy to get to which is surprising in a sense because I always that the most beautiful places where the most difficult to get to 😛

Upon doing some research on Ricketts Glen upon my return from my trip, I learned that the flow of Kitchen Creek was actually quite low.  The lines in the rocks you see in my photo are only visible with the water level is low.  Most of the photos I’ve seen of this location, in fact, feature a heavier flow.  More water falling would mean that I would not be able to catch this perspective.  While shooting, I never had thought about the water level being higher and how it would effect my camera placement and setup, but looking forward I’m excited for a heavier rainfall so I can explore some new compositions.
