Heaven's Light In Watkins Glen by 

A storm had just passed over Watkins Glen and the warm sun was breaking through the misty air in the glen. It was a truly magical moment to behold.

Watkins Glen State Park is located in the Finger Lakes region of New York, at the southern end of Seneca Lake, in the north eastern United States.

This image was captured with a Canon EOS 10D DSLR / Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens. The focal length was 21mm, ISO was set at 400 with an f/8 aperture and shutter speed of 1/30 sec. The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto tripod and “joystick” ball head.

No “special effects” have been applied here. The sun rays are just as they actually appeared to the naked eye.

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.

    Heaven on earth. I’ve been there. Did you make it to the top?

  • Yes, we did, several times. My wife and I love this wonderful place and visit as often as possible. It’s always a little different every time we hike through the Glen.

    Thanks you,
