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.

    An excellent idea!!

  • Thanks a lot, Nancy! This was a “lucky shot”, through the windshield of my van, with almost no warning. It had “Merry Christmas” written all over it… before I even selected the type tool in PS.

    All my best,

    Gene

    The focus is great, considering the circumstances , especially! But what I find so appealing is the snow falling, and the horse, who is so perfectly posed, legs evenly spaced, head at the right height. I think you truly captured this image at exactly the best possible instant.

  • Thank you so much, Nancy! It was “pure dumb luck”! The lens was in manual focus mode, the camera was securely mounted on a big heavy tripod and I just had sat down inside my crowded van. I shot this through the windshield.

    It was taking a photograph through a porthole, while wrestling an octopus inside a submarine! LOL! The photo gods were with me, I guess.

    I really appreciate your extremely kind comments!

    Best wishes,

    Gene

    Amazing! Manual? You are soooo good!!

  • Thanks for your very kind words! I almost always shoot using manual focus, especially when I use a tripod. I wasn’t really expecting to take any handheld “action” shots that evening. This event was completely unexpected. I was very lucky to get the shot.

    Best wishes,

    Gene
