Green Landscape (Central New York)

I like these expansive vistas and long horizontal lines, viewed from the Standpipe in Thornden Park, Syracuse. They reflect something of the wide open space that is Central New York. Human habitation is largely invisible to the eye from this angle and time of day, but the landscape pops up at night on July 4th with little flashes of firework from all the medium sized and small sized places across the region. Just above the University, it’s a great place to be in the summer when everything is still green and a little humid, with no students around.
