Just had the chance to explore a small fraction of Wadi Rum, Jordan also known as The Valley of the Moon ..this is a location I really need to explore in depth the next time I have the chance to explore this amazing country. Just had the pleasure to witness such an incredible sunset (pic coming soon). Here is a quick take on how magnificent this place really is. My usual landscape photography will come once I get back home but for now... here is.. and sorry about that....another self portrait of me contemplating this awesome location. I cannot be grateful enough for having the chance to see these magnificent places. Thank you +Visit Jordan for making the experience a memorable one.

After months of planning and hard work I am extremely happy to have finally finished my new website.
I have worked really hard on this project, and I am not one to often ask for shares but would truly appreciate the help here but only if you think it is worth sharing. smile emoticon Truly appreciate your support.
When I started looking for a company to take care of the creation of my new website..I wasn’t looking for just any company. I did not want a company that keeps popping out new websites one after another like so many are presently doing. These companies create websites that, as I like to say, have no soul. They keep using the same templates over and over again and simply change the pictures and colour schemes. I wanted to find a company with passionate individuals just like myself that love what they do. One that would actually take time to evaluate my needs, make sure to come up with great suggestions and finally create something better that I was initially asking for.
I could not be happier with the look and feel of my new website. They totally respected my current branding, came up with some brilliant ideas, and novel things to incorporate in this first release (1.0) but also proposed a few updates that will be added later on that will enhance dramatically the viewer’s experience. If you are looking for a team of passionate individuals to undertake your new or existing website..look no further..3ejoueur is definitely the team you are looking for. You can learn more about these great webmasters here:
After teaming up with 3eJoueur my next step was obviously to look for a reputable and reliable web hosting company that would give me exactly what I needed. As a professional photographer, you can probably imagine that quality comes first. I always look for the same quality in all the people are partner with. As you can see, my website is quit elaborate and will get even more within the next year. Me and my team have put so much time and effort into this project that the last thing I wanted is for my visitors whole experience to be tarnished by hosting it with a mediocre hosting company.
I have had miserable experiences with some of them which I will not name but I promised myself that this won’t happen again. So after researching on that matter and consulting my partners from 3eJoueur, We have come to the conclusion that  would definitely be part of the top hosting companies I can choose to partner with that will offer me complete peace of mind. Now I have a website that loads faster, with innovative ways to keep it safe and lightning fast support if needed. Truly excited that such a reputable company with strong ethics agreed to partner with me.
If you are not satisfied with your current hosting or looking for a place to host your new website, I highly recommend you give them a try…

Sometimes I feel we live in a world that is slowly turning us into zombies. We spend countless hours on social medias wishing we were someone else or somewhere else. We keep judging our lives and who we are in relation to other people’s post. We spend countless hours watching TV Shows or movies with "no soul". Shows that beside making sure we are unproductive or should I say "entertained", have absolutely no other goals. Most of them hardly brings us any positive feelings, emotions or motivations to be better at what we do or who we are as humans. Unfortunately, many of us get trapped into this only to realize after a few years that we are exactly at the same point we were years ago and wonder why. Worst is, after pondering on that for a short while, we quickly start the same pattern again and again. It almost looks like all this has been conceived on purpose in order to make sure we dont think too much, we don’t ask too many questions, we don’t have faith in or even worst don’t have any goals and dreams at all. In other words, making sure we live our lives like zombies. We constantly create ourselves material needs, consume more than we should and think we have no control whatsoever over what is going on in our lives. I personally think that the problem is not the world we live. It would be too easy to blame everything on it.

I Think The Main Problem is.....We forgot how to think!!

The second we have a minute to spare we immediately connect to whatever device we can to make sure we fill in that gap. And this goes on all day until we can barely keep our eyes open. When is the last time you took time uninterrupted, with no distractions, with only a pen and a paper? Took the time to think of things you would like to change or happen in your life, write them down and think of ideas on how you could accomplish them. Don’t question them just write them down. It does not matter how silly they might sound at first, these ideas might trigger bigger and better ideas down the road. By doing this daily practice, you will quickly realize that:

- You do have more control over your life that you thought possible.
- You do have the power to become better person.
- You can make this world a better place for you and others.

As soon as you start doing this, you will immediately feel better about yourself and this will radiate towards others giving them the energy they need to do exactly the same. The best way to inspire others is not by our words but by our actions. Again I will end this post by sharing one amazing quote by the great Mahatma Ghandi

“ Let’s Be the change we want to see in the world”

I have come across multiple obstacles recently and decided to keep following my heart even if every night before falling asleep my mind tells me otherwise. To me, the feeling of being uncomfortable is one that tells me I am heading in the right direction. Some of the best experiences in my life happen when I said “ The hell with it, I’m doing this” (apart from that time when I was a kid and decided to jump off the swing over ten of my friends and broke my arm wink emoticon )
I feel like my heart is connected to something that is way bigger than me. A higher force that is constantly guiding me in the right direction. I do strongly believe that my direction is the right one even if at this present moment it might look like I am heading for a crash landing. I do believe that that events will occur in order to rectify my situation. Which ones and when will they happen you ask? I have absolutely no idea, but I just know they will. Some call me irresponsible but I have come to the conclusion that in life we have 2 choices, It’s either we keep heading in the direction where our heart guides us and keep getting closer and closer to finally one day reach our destination or stay where our mind keeps telling us to and one day wish we had made the move sooner but now it's too late. Now please understand, I am not saying that we should never follow our logic, I am simply saying we should try to pay more and more attention to what our heart wants because in the end, ( and I will use that famous quote to end this post: "Life Is Not Measured By the Number of Breaths We Take, But By the Moments That Take Our Breath Away" ) …. you have to agree with me that these moments are without a doubt created when we follow our heart wink emoticon
Wishing you all a life filled with these incredible moments that will take your breath away. heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon

Quick self portrait from the beautiful Mt-Megantic National Park. First time I actually visit this part of Quebec and my my was I not disappointed. Found so many hidden and no so hidden treasures and barely scratched the surface of this beautiful location. Definitely need to go back in a few weeks to capture the full peak of fall colors. I was also very fortunate to have the luxury to stay in the new SEPAQ EXP Cabins..this is what I call true luxury in the wilderness. These Fully equipped micro cabins ( heated, shower, toilet, small stove and fridge, pots, pans dishes, utensils ) Perfect for those who want to experience the outdoors without having to carry all your camping gear. Simply bring food and you’re all set.
For this shot I used the new Canon 5DSR with the new Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens. Absolutely love this new lense and how wide you can shoot with it. A real dream come true for a landscape photographer like myself. Also was very excited to see the beautiful starburst this lens creates when shooting directly into the sun. +Canon Canada Inc +fstop Gear +Ten Tree

Really can relate to well written
Life is like a journey on a train...with its stations...changes of routes...and accidents!
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel by our side.
However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone….but not quite.
As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.
Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Some will move to another car for awhile and come back. Others will go so unnoticed we don't realize they left their seats!
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hurts, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.
Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers...requiring that we give the best of ourselves because we are all on this ride together.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way - love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are, including our seat if necessary.
It’s important because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty -- we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life without us.
I wish you a joyful journey for the coming years on your train of life. Reap success, give lots of love and be happy.
More importantly, be thankful for the journey!
Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train! heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon

Contrary to what many of us tend to believe, the happiest people aren't the ones with the most money, houses, cars, fame etc..On the other hand, they also aren't the ones with the least but I was amazed to read in a recent study that Panama, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico are the top tree world happiest countries in the world with US ranking 23rd and Canada 24th. Now, can we really based our judgement on a study if there is no real way for us to know how legitimate this study really is? Of course not, but having been in one of these countries, and witnessing first hand the people from Costa Rica, I tend to believe it a little more. <3 
Let's help bring those numbers up wink emoticon ...Today, I will share a morning exercise that does not require special equipment and will make you feel GREAT right from the start!!
First - Set aside what's wrong with your life 
Second - Focusing on the many reasons you have to be happy.
Me First :) 
1- I am Alive
2- I am healthy
3- I have the power to see and witness all these incredible places
4- I am surrounded by people I love heart emoticon 
5- I have found my purpose
6- My morning Coffee
7- Good Bottle of Wind tongue emoticon
8- I work for myself (even if I am underpaid tongue emoticon ) 
9- Ability to ear beautiful music
I will end by being a suck up but I truly believe it ...
10- My beautiful Facebook friends that I am fortunate enough to have met over the years <3 ;) 
What are your reasons to be happy? Please share yours and let's inspire others to give this a try.

Yesterday night I wanted to test to power of my Canon 5DSR in combination with the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Lens with Internal 1.4x Extender which gave me approx 560mm focal length on my full frame sensor. So what better time to do it than with a Super Blood Moon. Unfortunately I was not able to get the full blood moon due to heavy cloud cover that had to come just has the magic started to happen. Nevertheless, once I got home, I was amazed on the amount of details I got while shooting the Super Moon. Here you have a shot of the Super Moon just as the eclipse started and one of the blood moon 3/4 into it when cloud cover started to softened my results. Still had an amazing time watching this incredible show….See ya in 2033 Blood Moon… Don’t even want to do the math to see how old I will be..hopefully my eyesight will still be working tongue emoticon For those who did, Hope you all had a good time watching this. +Canon Canada Inc, Vancouver

I have been to Norway twice already and totally fell in love with the incredible country. I was extremely happy when +serdar ugurlu photography  contacted me to see if I would be interested in teaming up with him and Christian Ringer to hold an amazing photo tour in one of the most beautiful places on earth ...Lofoten, Norway. smile emoticon Not only will I get to visit this beautiful place again, but will do so at the best time of the year to be there with two passionate individuals. In Spring, Lofoten is blessed with the "Arctic Light“ a phenomenon which takes place in the weeks before the midnight sun. During this period the sunrise and sunset are interconnected in a breathtaking show of color and light lasting between 8 – 12 hours. A dream come true for any photographer and nature lover. Would love to see you there in April 2016. For more info about this amazing photo tour please visit:

Here is an old unreleased photo I took in Lofoten back in 2010 during my last visit.

Fine Art Landscape & Nature Photographer
    Owner, present
    Fine Art Landscape & Nature Photographer
Basic Information
Fine Art Landscape & Nature Photography - Limited Edition Prints -

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.

Bragging rights
Still alive and enjoying life...that should be something to brag about ;)
