I recently visited the Stover Myers Mill on Dark Hollow road.  It has not yet opened for the season, but there was plenty to see outside.  While visiting, I went upstream a bit to look at a dam I had seen on previous trips to this area.  This google map link shows the small dam. 

I recently purchased a 4x Neutral Density filter, but have not had a chance to play with it.  Well, this day, I has a BLAST.  I took a bunch of shots with the 24-105 and to 10-22.  I think the 24-105 produced the best shots.   

I had my monopod with me, but I choose to not use it.  For the first shot, I braced myself against a conveniently located tree.  I do not recall what I used to the second shot.

Exposure 1/4 sec @ f22 (shutter priority)
ISO 100
Curves adjusted for contrast

I zoomed in on an area that I thought was interesting.

Absolutely beautiful. I love the way you zoomed in on the second one, to show the up-close detail. These pictures really are stunning.

Makes me wish for a waterfall nearby.. I only have a very uninteresting dam spillway... great shots.

Beautiful shots! I love this area and I also love the area where you live. Pennsylvania is a great place. :)
