LOL anyone that says LI kicks all of central NY's ass scenery wise, hasn't seen much of Central NY. As mentioned The Adirondacks alone (just one spot in the state that has hundreds) rival most natural wonders of beauty across the US.

Long Island..Pshaw..musta been trying to troll.

I worked two jobs, and have a family with 2 kids...and i found time to enjoy/explore it both with the fam and alone. It's about prioritizing what's important to you. A lot of people will waste countless hours drinking beer at a bar, or watching reality tv after work, and then claim they have no time. If it matters to you, you make time.

Nothing in the world is ideal..sure I've had to wake up before sunrise to catch some of those pictures..sure I've had to wake the family up for trips places before they wanted to get up, and hated me for the first hour...but when all's said and done, they (and I) were glad to have done it, because we got to see what most don't have time for.

Well, you could actually put your money where your mouth is and blow us all with your beautiful photos of Long Island.
