Hidden Swamp in Ithaca

While riding my bike last week, around the airport, and just beyond, I found a little area that had a very swampy, bayou look to it. Very green. Like something out of a Swamp Thing comic book. So I went there today (didn't bike, as I wanted to take a few lenses) and took a few pictures.

The entire area, viewed from the road is very narrow. I was standing on the edge of the road the entire time. After a few minutes, the mosquitoes realized I was around, so it was time for me to go.

The first picture is a panoramic shot, and the last is slightly doctored to show what I see in my mind when I look at it. I even added some sun-dappling.

This isn't what I think of as "Ithaca".

Rainbow sunlight. Looks like the Swamp Thing should be reveling in it.
