Title: Dare to be
Location: Jökulsárlón, Iceland
Photo by: --> Instagram: @difruscia
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!”

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours. - With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose." +Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Wishing all my Canadian friends a Happy Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is not all about turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. <3 - Marcel Proust

Not sure if you heard the news but what DJI unveiled yesterday is Simply Awesome!! The new Mavic Pro drone is about the size of my Canon 70-200L Lens, that means It will fit nicely in my f-stop Gear Satori backpack. Don't see the need to hire a sherpa or buy a donkey anymore. Can't wait for this baby to come out.
Drones are definitely the latest trend and more than ever users are asking for smaller more portable ones. GoPro answered the call last week with their new Karma but now DJI unveiled today the Mavic Pro. It is about half the size and weight of...

Everyday, everyone needs to disconnect from their hectic life.
Even if it is for a few seconds, always take time to dream,
Take time to smile
Take time to laugh,
Take time to be friendly,
Take time to play
But most of all....Take time to love... it is our greatest gift.
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend my friends <3

To everyone that presently own a website or planning to start one my friends at SiteGround are presently having an amazing deal: They have just launched a pretty massive Migration promotion which will be live until September 8th.

All new clients will be able to claim:
- a free website migration
- а free domain transfer
- a compensation of up to 6 months of their contract with the previous host.

The offer is pretty ace because usually, we are reluctant to change hosts, even if we are having a bad experience. The reasons are that we find the migration frustrating and fear downtime and also the already incurred cost for prepaying the service. Siteground has the perfect counter-arguments to both: Their expert team will do the migration absolutely for free, preventing any potential downtime, and they will compensate up to 6 months from your previous hosting contract. To top it off, They will also transfer your domain for free which, will make things easier to manage, and includes a one-year renewal of the domain. No migration hassle, no downtime, free compensation and free domain transfer! Yipeeeee :)
Simply click on this link to get this amazing deal:

A new chapter of our lives is about to start, will it be the one where the hero finally leaps out in the unknown and faces his or her fears to become who he or she always dreamed they would be? Would it be the one where all excuses are put aside and replaced with courage and determination? Now that we have a blank canvas in front of us, we can decide if we will paint a masterpiece or simply stare at it hoping it will paint itself. No better time than now to take action and control of our lives.

Remember: only two things will make your dreams come true
1 - Your choices
2- Your commitment to those choices.

I personally know many that had a really rough year, and for those of you make sure you don't let the past dictate your future. Look ahead, be grateful for what you have, be proud of who you are and have faith that in 2017, life has something amazing in store for you.
I wish you all a Happy New Year, one filled with Health and Love...with these two ingredients.. anything is possible. Adventure, Inspiration, Realization and Excitement are just a step away.

Stay Strong & Live with Passion

Title: Our Destiny
Location: Goðafoss, Iceland
Let's not be afraid to step out of our comfort zone. We all have enormous potential that lies dormant on the inside. Each and everyone one of us has gifts and talents that we are probably not even aware of. I know for myself that I have discovered photography because my ex-employer challenged me. I could have easily said no (and believe me I really thought about it) but decided to undertake the task and see if I was going to be any good. Needless to say that I am very glad I did. I personally find that there is nothing more beautiful to see someone who is exactly where he or she should be. Hope you have found or at least not given up hope on finding what makes you feel alive. Love that quote from Pablo Picasso that says "The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” which to me means, Find the one thing you are really good at and let the whole world benefit from it. <3 :) <3

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.

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