The Longmarsh


Photo Information
The Longmarsh mire, with it's remarkable gnarly lichen and moss festooned trees, here abrim with the rain-swollen brackish waters of the River Dart.

This was photographed at high tide, as the waters poured profusely upstream over the sluice, filling the wetland.

Looks like one of those places where the old gods might still dwell! I love the way the foreground trees stand out from the dark background and demand attention.
Looking at your images I find myself very envious of your travels around the most interesting and beautiful parts of the country and your ability to photograph them so beautifully.

Thanks very much for your generous comments Sally 😊 I feel very lucky to be able to be living in a beautiful part of the UK and to able to make photographs in it's wild places.

The marshes here are rich in wildlife and there are many places with a palpable essence of deep time.
