Trail Through The Great Marsh

Trail Through The Great Marsh

Pam often likes to make fun of my fondness for scenery with swamps, bogs, and marshes. She believes it odd that I enjoy hiking trails through such an environment. However, when I walk in one of the nearby state or national parks that contain wetlands, I always discover locations providing stunning imagery for my photography.

The accompanying photo was taken earlier this week as I explored a section of The Great Marsh in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. I have walked the path through this particular setting in different seasons, and each time I would consider the view distinctive or alluring.

In early June the foliage has grown green and lush; yet, the water is still mostly clear, and it hasn’t been covered by the mossy green that will soon arrive with summer’s heat and humidity. Indeed, looking at this picture one will have some difficulty determining the separation between objects and their reflections on the surface of the water.

When I visit places like this, every frame I capture with my camera seems filled with color, shape, and texture, even at times nearly resembling the richness of an oil painting.
