Serenity Sunday: Heron marsh

Not far from our cabin there is a marsh of bulrushes that covers an area of ten acres or so. It also contains a few dozen dead trees that are still standing, and a number of herons and an osprey or two have chosen these for their nesting sites. On its far edge a rises a hill that sports a lovely array of hardwoods and pines, and each October I keep a close watch on it for its color display. This year the maples dropped their leaves early but by the middle of last week the oaks’ leaves had progressed to rich chestnut and mahogany hues and those of the birches and poplars were a brilliant golden-yellow. It’s different every year, but it’s always worth stopping for a good look.  (Please click on the image for more detail.)

    Gorgeous shot, Gary, and I hope that other viewers will click on the photo, as I did, to see it in a larger and more beautiful format.

    Beautiful shot, Gary – those few pale lime or yellow green canopies really add a lot to it – what a beautiful place! Adrian

      This place is very dear to my heart, and I’m delighted that I’m able to share it with you in a form that captures your imagination as well. What a wonderful art form we have adopted!
