Sweet flag reflections

Sweet Flag by Carl KurtzThis photograph is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen from the wildly talented Carl Kurtz, whose gorgeous “fireflies on the prairie” photo graces the Berkshire Encyclopedia of Sustainability. He also writes wonderfully about the things he shares with us: “Sweet flag, like cattails grows in wet soil or shallow water.  In this case dramatic lighting late in the day enhances the simple form of the leaves and their reflection in the water’s surface.  Because of the sun’s low angle above the horizon its light is filtered by the atmosphere and is warm and soft, while the distorted reflection of each leaf in the rippled surface adds another interesting dimension.”
