Marsh, A photography collection

A couple of days ago I went to a new place to take pictures in my neighborhood.  It was a brooding day full of dark clouds.  I like these kind of days for photography because you get the best pictures of clouds.  Clouds express such a great dramatic element to any photograph.  But clouds were not the only element of drama that day...

 As I was wandering the pathways of Scriber Lake Park in Lynnwood I couldn't help but feel that something ominous had happened there.  There was a black trash bag lying in the middle of the grass, a random sock hanging near the marsh, and other strange things lying about.  I made sure that even thought I had my iPod playing in my ears that the volume was low enough for me to pay attention to my surroundings.  My instincts were on alert as I took pictures of the strange marshland.  It was hard to get past the barrier of water logged trees and plants to see what may lie beyond.  A private and protected feeling of the deeper sanctum of the marsh.  I only hoped it was protecting the birds and animals and not hiding something from being seen.  Strange that I would feel that way there as I often wander forests and woodlands on my own.  

A collection created in my gallery from this visit.  All photos similarly developed to add consistency of style and feel.   Using Lightroom and a filter called X Pro II with a gradient filter to strongly polarize the sky.
