Conservation Center Photography Show -- Summer Grass, Heald Track, Wilton NH 2012;

The New Hampshire landscape presents dense forests with embedded beaver ponds at almost every turn.  In mid summer the ponds are often full with water plants, water lilies and grasses and other plants that are by themselves striking.  In winter the ponds are frozen over and snow fills the forest.  I have made photographs from time to time in the Joe English Reservation in Amherst, Beaver Brook in Hollis, the Heald Track in Wilton, and in the Monson Center in Hollis.

This image was made at the edge of Batchelder Pond in the Heald Track.  The swaying grasses were frozen against the pond and distant shore background.  And the contrast of the grass seeds, rendered in light to middle grey tones is striking against the varied background.

The image was made with my Nikon Coolpix P510 point and shoot camera with digital capture. The image was printed with pigment ink on Hahnemülhe photo rag paper (308gsm weight). 15.5" x 11.6"
