40 A Sunset image from July 2015 that I took while kayaking on the Chenango River with Maria in Binghamton next to Otsiningo Park. It was quite a wonderful outing that we still talk about occasionally on our up stream journey that day. This is one of my most favorite sunset shot that I have taken to date! I just love the colors in it. Hope you enjoy it as well :) kayaking-0099 This is a picture showing you me and my partner in crime (Maria) from another outing that was about 5 or 6 miles further down the river from the sunset image above. This picture is from June of this year on the Susquehanna River in Vestal NY. A friend of our took the picture with my camera on this lovely day for kayaking or pretty much anything. I personally think that this image makes me really look heavy and really big. A hundred of more pounds over height. I think Maria probably thinks the same about her image in this picture as I do. She is really a beautiful petite little thing in person away from that life-vest and I'm about 15 to 20lb over wight for my height. Rugged would be the word that I would use to describe myself with spelling issues. Other them that I like this image of us and I wanted to give you a rare look into my life with a picture that I normally don't show on this blog that much. Maria says that I should put some more pictures of are activities with the boys and all on hear every once and a while. We'll see :)

63 A sunset from Kring Point State Park on the St. Laurence June 7th. To be beautiful means to be yourself. All the little defects and unhappy moments are opportunities to grow and know us better. We must appreciate and love everything the surrounds us. We can find so many beautiful things near us, things that we never knew about. All these beautiful things and experiences can teach us a lot.

A sunset picture that I took in April of 2014. It's taken on East Maine Rd in the Village of Maine near the Broome County Airport. It shows you a good look at the rolling hill underneath the Finger Lakes of New York State.

This was a picture taken on the first morning of our  father-son canoe trip that me and my oldest son went on a couple weeks back. The adventure lasted for three day as we camped, kayaked and fished on the far side of Stillwater Lake in the Adirondack Mountains. The first night we camped in a farmer's field some 30 miles from our final destination.   “Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh quote

A Sunset shot taken last weekend on Stillwater Lake in the Adirondacks of New York.   "No one can escape from illusions unless he looks at them, 
for not looking is the way they are protected…
And how else can one dispel illusions 
except by looking at them directly, 
without protecting them? 
Do not be afraid, then, to look upon fear, for it cannot be seen". ACIM
