A Day In The Life Of The Marsh [larger] [slideshow] [gallery] [home] [contact]

A day in the life of the marsh







Low sun, low tide



A thousand geese stream in from the sea ...



heading for the tufty grass ...



and populate the marsh



Herons fish the freshwater ...



as noon draws on



Short winter days soon bring the horizontal afternoon sun ...



and the distant sea starts to lift the boats from the mud


The tide floods in quickly and powerfully ...


and leaves again just as quickly as evening falls and birds depart



as the sun takes with it what is left of the weakly winter warmth
