Scenic Pennsylvania farm country in the fall …under abundant billowy clouds, a splash of sunshine and dramatic cloud shadows brought it all to life! What a beautiful American landscape to see and enjoy.

This is a view of Muncy Valley farmland in north central Pennsylvania, USA. The photo was captured on October 29th, 2008, from Ridge Road, between Clarkstown and Millville, just off of PA State Route 442.

This photo was shot hand-held with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8L Professional Zoom lens, 1/1000th sec. @ f/11. The ISO was set to 400 to maintain detail in the shadows and stop the motion caused by a strong wind.

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.
