This is the most vibrant maple tree I have ever seen! It is surrounded by autumn’s beautiful variety of greens and golds, which just made this glowing red tree POP before my eyes.

The autumn scene was captured on November 3rd, 2005, in the 100 block of Grampian Boulevard in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, USA.

This is the very first photograph that I ever submitted to RedBubble – in early 2009

This image was shot with a Canon EOS DSLR / Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens. The focal length was 23mm, ISO was set at 100 with an f/8 aperture and shutter speed of 1/250 sec. The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto tripod and “joystick” ball head.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    Mother nature at it’s best. Beutiful colors. Very pretty.

  • Thank you! I drove home at break-neck speed to grab my camera when I saw this glowing red maple. I almost always have my camera with me everywhere I go, but this day was a rare exception. I have not made that stupid mistake since.

    Thanks for your kind comments!

    Fantastic colours. Its too hot up in Queensland (Australia) for those sort of colours.
    Down south they would get them. I have 3 acres to fill with trees, but unfortunately can never grow these beauties.
    I enjoyed looking at this shot. Well Done

  • Thank you so much! I am so happy that I could bring a little “taste” of the north eastern USA in autumn to someone in Queensland!

    Best wishes,
