These cows were taking a break at the “scratchin’ tree”, beside Buffalo Creek in Union County, Pennsylvania, USA. The stream meanders between the farmer’s fields, after flowing under the Hayes Covered Bridge (which was directly behind me as I was taking this shot). This spot is located about two miles west of Mifflinburg, PA.

This photo was captured with a Canon EOS 5D camera, through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens at the 23mm focal length. The aperture was f/5 at 1/125th second exposure @ 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.
