A fully blossoming branch from high in my neighbor’s magnolia tree. The photo was captured just before sunset on March 23rd, 2012 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, USA. This photo was shot from the top of an eight foot step ladder.

This image was shot with a Canon EOS 30D camera, through a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro Prime lens. The aperture was set to f/5, with a 1/125th second exposure (no flash). A Manfrotto 555 tripod was used. This image is “straight from the camera”, no cropping or adjustments were applied.

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.
