Mountain Winter Water, Quehanna


A clear, pure, rushing mountain stream in northern Pennsylvania in winter. Steep forested hillsides all around. Solitude. Excitement and reverence.

I walked up along the stream, around mossy boulders and through wild Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel bushes. 

In this photograph, the tiny waterfall is flowing diagonally across the composition. The spray from the water has frozen on the edges of the rocks as the stream lowers in volume.

Location: Quehanna Wild Area, Elk State Forest, Elk and Cameron Counties, northern Pennsylvania.
