The Hiawatha river boat is a favorite tourist attraction in Williamsport, Pennsylvania for three seasons of the year. It is also very popular with the local residents because it is a wonderful way to see the beauty of the river and the gorgeous scenery along the shores of the Susquehanna.

The Hiawatha river boat is docked at the Susquehanna State Park in Williamsport, PA, USA, where this photo was taken last fall.

This photo was captured with a Canon EOS 10D body fitted with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Zoom lens, at the widest focal length. The shutter speed was 1/15th sec at f/8. The camera’s ISO was set to 100. A Manfrotto, tripod was used.

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.

    Stunning capture…. The water is so still and the reflection awesome!

  • Thank you so much, Cee! It was the only clear day we’ve had for quite a while, so I was out shooting pictures right up until sundown. This was one of my last photos of the day.

    Best wishes,

    Gene

    Very interesting and a great fall photo. I had never heard of this tourist attraction before.

  • Thanks! This boat was built in the early 90’s and became a big hit at Susquehanna National Park right here in Williamsport. (I actually designed and installed the original audio system on this vessel.) It has become a very popular attraction for the area.

    My best,
