Up Close and Grassy

marsh grass patterns

One of the main features on my walks on our local salt marsh back in 2010 was the marsh grass, their profusion and tallness. As mentioned in my previous walk here from the past (Past Walks 4), the grasses were all trampled to nothing by cows in the years between then and now. Hopefully they will return permanently to their former glory. I love(d) every aspect of them, from the sound of the wind rustling through them to the mud covered patterns of them on the banks of the River Loughor.

The other feature I have focused on in this post is the rusty fence posts and barbed wire. Anyone who knows my work as an artist (see alastair-duncan) working in tapestry weaving, will understand my appreciation and reasons for use of this materials in my work.
