I've been spending a lot of time at the Arcata Marsh, this area has been recently opened up to the bay water to flow in. They've opened a hole in the levee to let salt water into this field, over time it will become a salt water marsh with hundred year old seeds opening from the natural seed bank.
I've been really attracted to the cool colors from the reflected sky that wind their way through the warm tones of the grasses.
