Another incredible day in Myanmar. It was truly another day filled with beautiful life experiences and incredible scenery..Being on a river cruise permits me to view all sorts of different landscape without getting tired carrying all my equipment around. I must say I am really starting to enjoy the convenience of drinking a cold Gin Tonic while waiting for things to come to me... smile emoticon might as well enjoy it because I know this won't happen too often. Here is a beautiful moment I was able to capture from the boat yesterday. ‪#‎VikingCruises‬ +Viking River Cruises

Just had an amazing experience visiting the beautiful Shwedagon in Yangon Myanmar. The place is absolutely incredible but the people is what really made this experience something I will always remember. Here you see me taking a quick selfie with a group of beautiful young little nuns ( Feminine versions of monks ) Thank you once again +Viking River Cruises  for making all this possible ‪#‎VikingCruises‬. Cannot wait to see what the next few days have in store for me

“A man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles.” ~ Edward Abbey
Edward cannot be more right about this... unless you fly in an helicopter over the Canadian Rockies. tongue emoticon Just went over some of my pictures from last year and found another take from this wonderful experience. Seeing that pic, brought me right back!!. This was definitely one of my highlights from last year. Very hard to describe the incredible feeling and I owe this unforgettable experience to the pros at +Rockies Heli Canada  and the awesome people at +Travel Alberta. I will end this quick post with another quote from ~ Michael Althsuler ---- “The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” ----- Where are you heading today??

Terribly sorry for the lack of post my friends. I received multiple messages asking if I was ok, So to answer your question, I am doing great, as a matter of fact, I am doing extremely well. I have been busy working on a big project that will literally change my life.. I am very excited about this and should be able to announce it soon to the world. In the meantime, I will try to post at least once a week to keep in touch with all my beautiful G+ friends :) -- This shot was taken in Iceland during my last workshop. We decided to stop for a quick bite, but some of us decided to sick that meal explore the surrounding to see if we could find anything interesting to shoot. Needless to say, we weren't expecting to find this. This will be a moment that will be forever etched in my heart. I am sure that anyone present that day will tell you the same. Once you've experienced moments like this one, no longer will you be asking yourself, What's The Meaning of Life? ;)

*Little Inspiration of the day by +Steve Marabol *
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –

At all times, Dare to be!”

Simply Having fun with my Go-Pro and Snapseed. Today I really felt like like I was in another world, so much history... At the same time I made sure to make a wish to to the Emerald Buddha. Now the only thing I need to do is wait for it to happen. Thanks to +Viking River Cruises  for making this great experience possible... Next stop Myanmar for an 11 days cruise, Now that I really can't wait.

I recently got asked, "What is the single biggest mistake you have made in your life?" Took me a little while to answer this one and could not come up with an answer. I kept going back in my life and thought about all those moments where I thought I literally screwed things up only to realize an hour, or a year afterwards that these weren’t mistakes at all. All these so called mistakes were actually blessings in disguise. I can sincerely say that my mistakes were and still are the best life coach I could ever ask for.
- They made me realize that no matter how much I stress over things I do not control, It will never affect the outcome in a positive way, as a matter of fact, it will only make it worst. 
- They made me appreciate the people or things in my life instead of focusing on what I don’t have. 
- They made me realize that impatience always leads to no good. 
- They made me realize that most of my fears were nothing more than small pebbles in my shoes..Very uncomfortable but once removed, very trivial. 
- They made me realize that no matter how much I wish to be someone else, I will always be my one and only self and to be proud of that.
In other words, they all made me a better man.
I know that some of you might be able to share with me mistakes that you simply cannot find a positive outlook from but I am sure you will agree that you can on most of them.
If you are presently thinking you have just made a big mistake in your life, instead of making things worst by dwelling over it, Try asking yourself..What can I learn from this that will make me a better person? Who needs to spend money on a life coach really…lets just keep making mistakes.. They're free!!! (well sometimes they are) wink emoticon 
In the end the important thing is to remember this famous quote from an unknown author : "You can't make the same mistake twice. The second time you make it, it's no longer a mistake. It's a choice.” So I advise you to learn quickly !! Wishing you all a beautiful week full of mistakes. tongue emoticon

Wondering why your passion is not happening? A friend of mine is presently going thru major questioning about his passion and direction with life. This made me think.. why are we always prone to imagine the worst in a situation instead of dreaming big and imagining how big and fulfilling our life can get. Usually we don't want to mess things up by doing it wrong so instead we make sure we really mess things up by not doing anything at all. We waste months/years waiting for the perfect time to act and the more we wait the more we get scared to act..The more meaningful this passion is ...the more we tend to only imagine failure. There is a reason why this has became your passion. And that reason is.. you acted upon it and found that it truly made you feel alive. That feeling became like a drug and you needed it more and more. We did not learn what our true passion was by remaining inactive. So we have to make sure to keep that same spirit at all times...specially when we are trying to live out of it. We need to keep moving, not worry if this is in the right direction..keep moving and realign yourself if you need to but never stay inactive waiting for the right moment. This is when you can easily turn into that zombie again. If you see that something is not working, don't keep doing it for years hoping for a different outcome, change it around. Take some time to think..really think. Turn off all phones, TVs, distraction and take at least one night per week with a pen a paper to write down different ideas that could help you achieve your goals (sending an email to someone, trying a different approach, teaming up with a friend etc..)...don't judge what pops into your head..just write it down. You never know what other great ideas it might bring in the future. Let's face it, we are all waiting for Superman to come and save us, or that holy voice to tells us exactly what to do. I am here to tell you, this so called saviour is already there...living inside of us. It constantly tries to guide us in the right direction but we prefer to look the other way, the same way most of us do when we pass an homeless man on the sidewalk. The easiest approach is definitely..Let's pretend he's not there so I can go on with with normal little life. I strongly believe we were all born with what I call our own "Natural Navigation System" (GPS if you prefer) Once we have determined what our true passion is, it will automatically start guiding us in the right direction. Imagine this for a sec, what would happen if every-time your GPS tells you to turn one direction, you completely ignore it and turn the other way?? Well you would never get to your desired location. Why do most of us, do that with our lives? Bottom line is, There are no excuses that will bring you the life you want..Only Actions..no matter how small they are. If you truly want to live a fulfilling life that is full of passion, what are you doing to make it happen? The power only lies in your hands. Act now before it's too late. (If my friend reads this and knows this was meant for him...Love you bro..I truly believe in you :)

Again outstanding ..absolutely accurate we have to go after thing's that we dream of not all of us have the good fortune for them to fall into our laps, it's the actions or steps we take some are smaller stepping stones leading you up to your larger goals, and as long as we keep working like it all depends on us and I personally pray like it all depends on God. But keeping a happy worry free attitude is an around the clock battle for some. have faith and keep chasing growing along the way. .

For some, social media is a very bad thing but like everything in life, we need to make sure we connect with the right people and eliminate the ones that keep bringing our energy down. We need to connect with people that lift our spirits up, people that makes us feel good, in other words people that contribue to our well being and bring joy into our lives. From my personal experience, I have connected with hundreds of amazing individuals all over the world that have brought little chunks of happiness into my life and I personnaly thank you all for that smile emoticon heart emoticon. Some came into my life just for a brief moment and some chose to stay and became close friends. When I think about these great lasting connections, I immediately think of +Ken Kaminesky  +Elia Locardi  and +Naomi Locardi  . They are without a doubt some of the most hardworking, dedicated & talented individuals I was fortunate to meet via social media and then lucky to build a true friendship with. When I see people I love, living their dreams and making things happen for themselves, I cannot help myself than to be truly inspired. My three great friends have just entered in this great venture and created a new photography tour company called DreamPhotoTours.com. For the launched of their brand new website they have teamed up with some of the greatest companies in the field and put together an AWESOME photography giveaway ... and when I say AWESOME, I am not kidding!!!! You don't believe me? see for yourself http://bit.ly/DreamGiveaway15 ....If only I could enter.... snif snif snif cry emoticon I wish you guys (Ken, Elia and Noami) all the success you truly deserve. Love you lots heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon
Thanks again everyone for your constant support and hope you will enjoy this new little video smile emoticon Wishing you all a beautiful day.

We all came here for a reason, we all have something to share with the world, we all have these moments when our heart is telling us to do something but choose to ignore it too afraid of the unknown.
Next time when a new door presents itself, be strong, face your fears, and open that door. You will be amazed what’s on the other side.
Don't forget to click the HD 1080p on the bottom right.

Fine Art Landscape & Nature Photography - Limited Edition Prints - www.DiFrusciaPhotography.com
Introduction

Di Fruscia is a World Fine Art Nature & Landscape Photographer.

He spent most of his childhood years away from the city, having been raised mostly in the Canadian countryside. From the time of his birth, his experiences in nature was to become a large influence in affecting his ultimate passion for the beauties of the natural world.

His love for the arts has grown throughout the years, and he attributes his devotion to interpreting nature in an artistic manner to his parents' dedication to the arts. His father, Joseph, was a professional photographer during a period in his life and his mother, Michele, was gifted with artistic talents such as drawing, painting, and interior decorating. Her fine eye for details was a big influence on his perception of nature.

As he started reading everything he could get his hands on about photography, he quickly realized that this was an art form that would enable him to express his inner feelings about the world around him. This soon became an insatiable desire to record the beauty of nature. The camera soon became the perfect medium to express his true inner feelings.

The crux of his search was found while visiting the magnificent Gaspe Peninsula. On a warm Fall morning he approached the summit of Mont Ernest LaForce and discovered the breathtaking views spread out before him. At that point he knew this was it! Nature was calling his name loud and clear. This was a magical moment that he will remember forever. The art of photography had now turned to a true passion.

Since then, Di Fruscia's work has won many awards, has been published and displayed thru a multitude of Medias (books, calendars, magazines, travel guides etc.) and by many prestigious companies such as, National Geographic and Kodak, just to name a few. His work has also been displayed in several art galleries around the world.

Di Fruscia has set his goals to always improve his craft. His quest to become a better photographer will never cease. He personally thinks that the learning curve is endless, and he has only himself to criticize when he feels that he is not living up to his artistic endeavors. Constantly searching for those rare magical moments when the Perfect Light embraces nature in all its glory, you can rest assured - that this is only the beginning of a long and dedicated quest to capture the breathtaking beauty of nature.
