Winter Sunset Silhouette by Gene Walls

Currently unavailable for purchase

Setting sun over Bald Eagle mountain in the Susquehanna river valley of central Pennsylvania. The shot was taken from Cemetery Road in Williamsport, PA on a cold January evening.

The photo was shot with a Canon EOS 10D camera using a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L zoom lens @ 100mm. The shutter speed was 1/60th sec at f/19. The camera’s ISO was set to 200. 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.

    ooo soo so pretty and soft.. I love your composition on this one, Gene!

  • Thanks, Maureen! I had to reduce the brightness a bit on this one, since you saw it. The image was slightly washed out compared to the original (again). Now it looks the way I intended.

    Best wishes,
