"Rest Stop Under Siege"
Remembering on Memorial Day that those who have fallen defended us all.
May is Wetlands month! When we develop wetlands and set up a network of canals to do the job nature did we set ourselves up. I’m talking about Katrina. But fear not Wetlands can be restored. Pictured here is the Grassy Waters Preserve (part of the Everglades) in West Palm Beach. Scientists as far away as China (seeking to return rice paddies to their natural state) have come to study the success they’ve had in their restoration projects…..it only takes them 4 years to restore an area to Wetland status.
Has been the subject of contemplation throughout the ages. In Norse Mythology Bifrost connects Asgard and Midgard. In Greek myth it was the trail left by Iris a messenger of the gods. In Austrailian Aboriginal Mythology the Rainbow Snake is the god of water.
In Naturales Quaestiones (65 AD) Seneca the Younger devoted a whole book to the study of rainbows. Touching on the notion of a prism.
Aristotle, Descartes, Isaac Newton all contemplated the formation of rainbows. It would be these studies that be the building blocks of the color spectrum which is crucial to the photographic process.
My Favorite story is of course Bifrost, the rainbow bridge, guarded by Heimdall aided by keen eyesight and foreknowledge (pre-visualization)

Big Cypress National Preserve is adjacent to Everglades National Park. The ancient Cypress Swamps within are well worth some extra time to explore. Haunting it’s like stepping into history, a time before man.
