When we go camping we leave the TV behind, and usually find ourselves outdoors looking westward at sunset. The final sixty minutes before the sun goes down are known as "the golden hour" by photographers -- a time when the light is muted but somehow magical. Almost-sundown provides ideal conditions for taking picture, not to mention relaxing with your loved ones, a cold drink, and the beginnings of a campfire.
Stunning sunsets and the time to notice them -- just one of the reasons we go camping. "We like camping better!" (RAK)

I'm a husband, father, and small-business owner living in upstate NY, near Rochester. My specialty is residential remodeling: kitchens, baths, and countertops. Originally I provided design and blueprint services for my customers; hence the name "D'Zyne."
When I'm not busy working I love to go camping with my family in our 80's-era Shasta camper. I always take a good book, too, in case it rains.
What else makes me smile? The NFL, playing golf, great music (mostly Country these days), thunderstorms, bicycling with my kids, and puttering around in my garden. Oh yeah, and making new friends, like you!
