Here’s a typical view from a higher spot in Cayuga county. All the elevations are pretty much the same height. Seems like the whole area was at one time lifted and then the glaciers and time have worn down the land and formed valleys and lakes. What is powerful enough to just lift such a large portion of the state all at once? From this vantage point one can just catch a glimpse of Cayuga Lake at the foot of the distant hill. You can’t see it here, don’t even try. It’s 5.9″ x 11.8″ using watercolor and gouache on cotton paper.
