The other day I went out with two cameras since I hoped the clouds would break and I might get a few general marsh scenes. The second would be used for this rather than switch lens. It’s just easier, if I am near the car.
While it remained overcast it was not terrible and I did get these.
I was almost leaning on the car, parked under the large Oak and Spanish Moss taking this.
I am looking back the way we had come, Ellen walking towards me down the road. This is actually a large wide dike we can drive over.
Off the right side here is a salt marsh, ultimately fed by the Atlantic. The left side is miles of marsh ponds, a few swamps. Tall grass about 2 meters deep hide both sides. Drive off the side here and 3 meters down is water…and critters.
Above is looking over a bit of the salt marsh from that dirt road, almost same spot. Not much out there for a long way.
Here Ellen has gone by me and walked towards the far end of the dike road.
This is part of the scene Ellen was photographing. An Egret, marsh grass for miles, and of course if you look close a few Alligators.
A spectacular places isn’t it.
