Afternoon light streaming through a farmhouse window near Canandaigua Lake in the Finger Lakes. Clear and delicate the sunlight in the Finger Lakes part of New York has a characteristic gentleness. Water in the air from the lake, and the northern climate, softens the summer sun. Giving the photograph an early 20th Century feel to it the light hearkens Stieglitz interiors from his summer house in Lake George.
Lush water lilies growing in a highland pond in this landscape photograph from the Finger Lakes in New York. Mixed pine and hardwood forest surround the meadow boarding the woodland pond. Due to the elevation the clouds appear to scrape the tops of the trees. Although part of a park, the area has the semblance of a natural and virgin beauty to it.
