A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

Haven't checked this thread in awhile...

Love Kelly's horse and Kyle's bench. ... both lovely shots.

And Joel...that's a sweet HDR shot of the lighthouse at Irondequoit Bay. Turned out great, I'd say.

Here's my out and about this weekend...and I still can't believe it's the end of January and we don't have snow on the ground.
These were taken at Linear Park in Penfield on Saturday.

Very cool ribbon of road, Kyle... I love that one.

I was out and about today too...here's a shot from LeRoy Island on Sodus Bay...looking out to the sandbar/Crescent Beach...with the Sodus Point Lighthouse in the distance.
There should be snow and ice out there this time of year...it's more like late March or April.

Thanks. I wish I had framed it a little better. Oh well...just a reason to go back someday.

I had skipped over this one the first time. Cayman Island blow holes at sunset. The weird thing is I really did not do much to this shot. Only a little saturation of the yellows, oranges and reds. Burned shadows where water crashes over rocks to contrast the water. Burned mid-tones on over exposed water a little. Guess that's why I like it so much. Just lucky timing. A storm front was moving out.
