Two images taken while standing on a dike. Each photograph is the view from the perspective of standing by the water trunk. The gates were closed, no water moving between marshes, giving a glass like reflection on the water.
Below, the right side of the dike.
The trunks canal is naturally carved into the marsh by the flowing water. The curve empties into several miles of marshlands.
Below, the left side of the dike.
This sides canal flows from another miles long marsh passing the trunk. When open the trunk allows the water to move back and forth between either side.
This canal extends past the trunk and through a pine forest until it empties into… yep, more miles of marsh.
Oh yeah, this is the gate keeper standing by the left side.
While the first two landscape shots were taken he just walked around me. I was a mild annoyance.
