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

I really like the goslings photo Joel! Well done!

And Chris, the Yuengling photo is awesome...I love the reflection of the old building in the window.

Thanks Brett. That was taken on Crosby Lake in ON, Canada. Probably not smartest idea to take my camera out in a kayak on a large lake the 2nd time I had ever been in one. Im hoping to get myself one this year as I would love to travel around the DAK waterways.

Might not be the 'best' - but some of my own personal favorites...

Skaneateles Creek
Image
Snowball fight
Image
Floating by...
Image
Lick Brook
Image
Sunset on Halong Bay, Vietnam
Image
Sunrise on the South China Sea
Image
Victims of the Killing Fields in Cambodia
Image
Eighth Lake, ADKs
Image
Grimes Glen
Image
Leaves on Car Hood
Image
Fall Tamaracks in Highland Forest

This one I just took and I guess falls outside my 'best' for the year by just a little bit:

2011 I was rarely taking any pictures, because I was too busy.

- I know exactly where that is in Stony Brook and that's one of my favorite spots there.
- 2nd from the last: That was taken in Amherst? wow!
- I'd LOVE to visit Death Valley some day.
