If I Could Only Find One Perfect Lily Before I D... by 

As a real “gullywasher” was just ending, I grabbed a quick shot of this absolutely flawless lily. The raindrops decorated the brilliantly colored flower, intensifying the beautiful hues. If finding a perfect lily had been an item on my so-called “bucket list”, I think I could have scratched that one off off my “things to do”, with no regrets.

This photo was captured “handheld” with a Canon EOS 10D with a Canon EF 28-80mm f/2.8-4L lens at the maximum focal length. The shutter speed was 1/60th sec at f/5.6. The camera’s ISO was set to 100.

FEATURED in “The World As We See It…”

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.
