The Last Sliver Of Winter Sun by Gene Walls

The Last Sliver Of Winter Sun by 

Red sky at night… This is the last peek of the sun as it was disappearing behind Bald Eagle Mountain on a crisp winter’s evening.

This image was taken at sunset with a Canon EOS 10D through a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L telephoto zoom lens @ 200mm. The shutter speed was 1/250th sec at f/16. The camera’s ISO was set to 400. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release.

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.
