This is our Backyard?

I know this week’s post is late and I am sorry for that. However, it was late for good reason. If I was not late with this post I would not be able to share these wonderful images that I was able to obtain over the weekend. While I realize most sites have their fill of sunrise or sunset images this was my first attempt at it and I think the images speak for themselves.

This image was taken in the Adirondack region of New York State. I had the fortunate opportunity to spend the entire weekend in the secluded town of Indian Lake. It is approximately one-hour outside of Lake George, aside from all there is to do in town, the house we occupied had wonderful amenities! There is nothing like sitting under the stars with a fire pit burning, reading and spending time with family! Truly relaxing.

An early rise won me this photo opt and when my in-laws alerted me to an adjoining lake that provided even more splendor I made a point of moving my equipment there for the sunset later that evening.

Overseas is beautiful, but don’t forget the wonderful places we have in our own backyard to visit as well. Enjoy.


Still in New York?

Are we still in New York? This is the question I quietly mouthed to myself recently on a trip to Fire Island. It had been several years since I have had the pleasure of visiting “the island” and I must say not much has changed, except for my level of appreciation. I was pleasantly surprised when it all started coming back to me and finally I was able to relax and enjoy the views and the people.

It truly is a slice of heaven in New York. It is such a juxtaposition to Manhattan and pretty much every other area of this city that we call home. As much as I enjoy this city and love living here, I must admit it is nice to get away from the go, go, go Diego go drive you must have to survive here. Fire Island was just what I needed to relax and re-energize! What is the most striking about this place is the laid back nature of what are clearly other native New Yorkers. The fact that you can leave your personal belongings strewn about and no one would think of touching them is baffling, truly one of the biggest differences at this oasis. Well , I will refrain from calling this place Nirvana and just show you an image or two. I hope they can convey the beauty and tranquility of the scene.
