There is a certain undefined quiet comfort in being by marsh grass. One experiences a stillness that is only disturbed by the wind ruffling the grasses.

That undefined quiet is one of the things that signify the benefits of marshland. Marshes are buffers between wave and storm action of the ocean or bay and more stable, fertile ground. Marshes and distribute nutrients into that fertile soil and filter out pollutants. They are also breeding grounds for commercial and recreational fish.

The quiet peace of looking at marsh grass holds a great deal of meaning. Given the calm feeling, I decided to do a nostalgic black and white treatment for these photos as well.
