Our pond really belongs to the neighbors .... They pay the taxes and we get to enjoy the view, sometimes the reflections are just perfect and need to be photographed.... :)

The view from the newly renovated and re-opened roof of the Rockefeller Center that is now referred to as "Top of the Rock". Timing is everything...we were from street level to rooftop in a matter of minutes, no lines, no waiting.

Ferry traffic to Fire Island...As summer approaches the ferry traffic builds to a very busy pace. Sayville's Brown's River is a key gateway to Fire Island communities.

Grandson number one...Christian..., polite, serious, sweet and intelligent. First grade attention span: seven innings. The METS take a close one from the Brewers in Milwaukee with a solo homer in the ninth. :)

A shed with a View...not the typical garden shed but rather one at the Peconic Herb Farm where there is so very much more to see than herbs. This shed sits just a short distance from the banks of the Peconic River, very scenic indeed.

Catboat... a timeless common sight on the Great South Bay. Catboats were preferred for their ease of handling, with a shallow draft and wide beam they were ideal for shallow coastal bay work. This one in Sayville, NY is a fiberglass reproduction of the original classic.

Brown's River and the Great South Bay is becoming a popular photo backdrop for brides and grooms. Now that my NikonD50 has become required boating equipment I was able to join in as we sailed past the jetty. Evidently Long Island weddings require at least three photographers....CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR FULL SIZE VIEW

Spring bechmarks on Long Island....Daffodils, Tulips, song birds and most enjoyable of all (for me) is the view from the helm. From mid-April to the end of May thousands of hulls will make the "splash" to start the local boating season.
