"Wind As Light"
A cyclone of light! An actual photograph of a natural phenomenon, aided by a 4th of July celebration! With fireworks exploding over the lake on the US Independence Day holiday, the breeze over the lake caught this particular firework explosion at just the right time and just the right exposure, creating ribbons of light that carved out the wind's path against the colorful backdrop of late sunset.
This image was created in the Finger Lakes region of upstate NY, a region of complex geography and geology. Deep lakes formed by glaciers and creeks running down steep gorges to feed the lakes with water from rain and snowmelt. There are 11 Finger Lakes: Otisco, Skaneateles, Owasco, Cayuga, Seneca, Keuka,Canandaigua, Honeoye, Canadice, Hemlock, and Conesus. Cazenovia Lake to the east, although smaller, is sometimes called "the twelfth Finger Lake. Oneida Lake, to the northeast of Syracuse, New York, is sometimes included as the "thumb," although it is shallow and somewhat different in character from the rest. The Finger Lakes area is New York's largest wine producing region, excelling in the production of cool-climate wines, and the region has been designated the The Finger Lakes American Viticulture Area (AVA). The area is also known for education, with well known institutions of higher learning including ivy league Cornell University in Ithaca, Ithaca College also in Ithaca, and Wells College in Aurora. Nearby New York State Parks include Taughannock Falls State Park, Buttermilk Falls State Park, Watkins Glen State Park, Filmore Glen State Park, Long Point State Park, and Robert H. Treman State Park.
