Waterviews is a collection of photographs, thoughts, and experiences acquired while kayaking the Carman's and Connetquot Rivers, and the Setauket and Orient Harbors of Long Island, New York. It contains over 75 scenic and wildlife photographs, most snapped from the unique vantage point of a kayak floating on top of the water. Topics written about include, the science of waterway formation, locations and tours of the waters, Long Island history, photography, and information about kayak basics, techniques, and safety. Waterviews also explores subjects that surface when out on a paddle such as, happiness, relaxation, sickness, loss, and friendship. Throw in some funny stories and you'll find kayaking is not always serious business. The take-home messages include, live a happy life, appreciate nature around you, protect and preserve the waterways, and take time to visit and see our natural surroundings.

Praise for Waterviews

"In Waterviews, Cardone takes us along, on an informative and enjoyable excursion into a Long Island that most never see."

"The photographs framed in Waterviews often resemble delicate, fine art paintings, and along with Cardone's educational text, they create a revealing portrait of Long Island waters. A gem of a book!"

Gloria Golden, photographer and author of the award winning photobook, Desaturated Soul
