The color red in its purest form! A perfect tulip backlit by the sun.

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.

    A new group has been started and I think it is called “All Colors of the Rainbow” or something like that. Anyway the color of the week is red. This would be a winner. It is beautiful.
