New York State is large and has a very diverse landscape. It is home to one of the world's most populous cities, vast mountain ranges, and enormous open rural spaces. Over 19 million people call it home. The State has a park system that is every bit as robust and diverse.

The New York State Park system is home to over 200 State Parks, which total over 350,000 acres. I have not visited...

My recent trip to Key West Florida during the first week of March was my first ever trip to this area of Florida.  To be honest, I am not a big fan of Florida but the rest of my family is, and truth be told I was looking forward to some warm weather.  The long slow grind that is winter in the Northeast and New England was starting to take its toll.  I  had had my fill photographing white, grey and brown, I am ready to...

This week finds me back home on Long Island enjoying some winter weather of our own.  A mid-December snowstorm has blanketed the area, creating some nice winter photography opportunities.   When snowstorms hit the island I like to head for the beaches.  The coupling of the coastal beach, traditionally associated with summer and the snowy landscape make for a lovely contradiction that do compliment each other.   The auburn colored sand, the warm light of a rising sun and blueish white of a fresh snow...
