A coastal marsh is a special place. We can find a real feeling of escape and peace in these out of the way places that have their own rhythms of daily tides and changing light. And yet if you stand in place long enough, like an artist who is quietly at work, the environment is alive with birds and fish and insect life. A whole ecosystem exists fragile and beautiful beneath the dome of the sky.
