A view from the rolling farmland hills of Unityville, Pennsylvania, USA, looking toward the power plant near Berwick, PA. It was a late autumn evening, just before sunset. I felt that the image conveyed a message beyond the obvious visual impression.

This photo was shot handheld with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8L professional lens, 1/1500th sec. @ f/8. The ISO was set to 800. The image was saved at five exposure settings, one stop apart, from -1 to +4. The exposures were processed in Photomatix Pro v3.2.

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.
