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.

    wow…. I love the perspective on this, Gene… I can imagine what it was like in the 1800’s. Imagining what and who crossed over it. Terrific.

  • I really appreciate that, Maureen! I have those same thoughts every time I visit one of these grand old structures. It’s very easy to imagine those much simpler times here! Thank you so much!

    Best wishes,

    This one would be accepted in the Which Way group because your focus is on the pathway. :)
    Great interior shot. Mine always come out dark with a really bright glare at one end. I haven’t got that one figured out just yet. lol
