Another check for flowers went unfulfilled but I did get a chance to explore a swamp landscape that I have been driving past for years. It’s a difficult spot for compositions as the approach is Old Montague Road, I assume, that is now extremely overgrown. As well, since it is next to and below Route 63, which is highly traveled, guess what- loads of trash thrown down the hill. I half expected to get conked by a tossed bottle but as it wasn’t nighttime no beer bottles were forthcoming, thank goodness. I found one clear view of the tussocks and beyond and the light, overcast and rain ending, was rich for saturation.
Across the way is a large pine with a large pileated hole. If I want to get better compositions another day I will have to wear hip boots to get farther out. My knee high Mucks were not quite up to the task.
