Poor guy…

Please pay special attention to the hormone induced euphoria clearly displayed on that young man’s face!

This summer fun photo was captured on the grassy shore of Lake Jean, which is part of Ricketts Glen State Park in north eastern Pennsylvania, USA.

This photo was taken handheld with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L zoom lens. The focal length was 350mm and the shutter speed was 1/125th sec. at f/13, ISO 100.

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.

    haha… Oh Gene……….

  • Thanks, Maureen

    Don’t worry, I’m not a perv… This was just submitted for a challenge titled “sunbathers”. I knew I had this shot from last summer and I thought it would be a good one to enter. Couldn’t help it …I’ve turned into an RB “challenge junkie”!

    Did you notice the look on that guy’s face??? He probably couldn’t wipe that grin off for at least a week! LOL
