Country View From Rose Valley Road by 


Today has been the first day that I could feel just a hint of autumn in the air. The temperature fell below the boiling point and there was a refreshing breeze, for a change. I found this old photo from two Octobers ago that really suited my “end of dog days” mood.

I was driving back from Rose Valley Lake, just as the sun was setting on what had been a very dark overcast early autumn day. I popped over the crest of this steep hill when I saw the unexpected splash of sunlight highlighting the hilltops off in the distance. I just had to pull over to try to catch the magical view that that had suddenly appeared before my eyes!

This photograph was captured on October 22nd, 2008, on Rose Valley Road, in north central Pennsylvania, about 8 mi. north of Williamsport, PA. The shot was taken handheld with a Canon EF 28-70mm f/2.8L lens on a Canon EOS 10D DSLR body. The aperture was set to f/11, shutter speed 1/125th second at the 70mm focal length. The camera’s ISO setting was set to 400.

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.

    I can’t tell you how impressed I am with this shot…….I see things like this and I NEVER am at the right place right moment with camera in hand and all of that……so glad you were and shared it with us!! Love it!!

  • Thank you ever so kindly, Elizabeth! My camera is almost never beyond arms reach these days. I experienced way too many times when I had wished that I had brought my camera with me in the past …a lesson finally learned.

    Best wishes,

    Gene

    Absolutely stunning Gene!!!! Gives one a “breath of country” and a peacefulness as only country roads can do!!

  • Thank you so much, Ruth! I go to this area for the pure pleasure of the peaceful surroundings. It was a real surprise when God decided to shine his sunshine spotlight down on the valley, before the day had ended.
