Wetlands

Guadalcanal Village wetlands:
Guadalcanal Village has been my favorite photographic “subjects” for many years. It’s a wetlands restoration site owned by the California Department of Transportation, having been used as a mitigation site. It is due to become part of the San Pablo National Wildlife Refuge at some point. It’s in northern California at the northern end of Mare Island, just off Hwy 37.

Wetlands, I discovered, are infinitely varied: reflections, water, clouds, scum, logs and sticks, and pickleweed, wonderful pickleweed which changes color throughout the season. –Sally Mack
