Five Below

This past weekend I had it in my head that I wanted to photograph some waterfalls in the Pocono region of Pennsylvania. The main reason I wanted to do this at this time frame, was because it would probably be the coldest weekend of the entire year, which should make for some great imagery. In that regard, I think I was right on target. I reached out to fellow photog from the area, Eric Goins. He was kind enough to recommend Resica Falls. It is a Boy Scout camp I had been to many years ago with my sons. When I arrived, it was a balmy -5 degrees Fahrenheit. I wasn’t sure if my equipment or periodically exposed hands would endure. I’m happy to report, both performed very well.  I used the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and the M.Zuiko ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO with a 10 stop ND filter. After a couple of hours I knew I shouldn’t push the boundaries too much further. I headed out and treated myself to a much deserved hot chocolate. BTW – As I was leaving the temperature made it up to a warm +3 degrees. So, when someone says No-pain No-gain, I have an even better appreciation for that!

    Beautiful images Frank, but I must ask, are you part Eskimo? I was up at a resort in Lake Harmony the same weekend, and after less than 20 minutes in the sub-zero temperatures, my fingers were numb, eyes were watering (OK, maybe I was crying), and I couldn’t wait to get back inside and defrost myself by the fireplace.

    No doubt PA has had it’s fair share of a brutal winter. You captured the beautiful side of it superbly!
