East Meadow River Marsh: Haverhill, Massachusetts. A beautiful, unspoiled and undeveloped piece of nature that became my photographic project for the entire year of 2014. Busy Rt. 110 literally crosses over it on its way from Rt. 1 in Salisbury west through Haverhill and on.
Every week (I missed a few, I admit) I stopped by the marsh with my camera. As the year went on I felt a growing sense of propriety. "My marsh" I would say to friends.
Here it is! My last blog post for the year - November and December. Look back at the other marsh posts and vote for your favorite by leaving a comment!
|Reflection of exploding, brown cattails. Nov. 4|
|Yellow leaves and berries almost gone from the oft photographed bush. Nov. 4|
|A foggy day, my favorite! Golden browns with a hint of green. Nov. 12|
|A dusting of snow and ice changes the scene entirely. Winter on the way. Nov. 26|
|The marsh becomes monochromatic in late fall and winter. Nov. 26|
December - will there be snow or a deep freeze? Wish I could string holiday lights from branch to branch! Or tie glitzy bows around the trunks. What am I saying? I love this marsh exactly as it is!
|2 weeks later there is not much difference. December looks like November! Dec. 12|
|A different perspective - all reflection. Dec. 12|
|Only the evergreens look alive. Animals burrow under. Dec. 15|
|The decay of fall is incased in ice. Dec. 30|
I will cast the first vote. I vote for May! I loved the changes that happened so rapidly in that month. What do you think? Vote! What was your favorite month at the marsh?
