Cypress Swamp I
In the deep south of America floats the Santee River in Carolina, 230 km long it was named by early English settlers after the Santee Tribe which inhabited areas on the middle part of the river.
The much-maligned swamp is not the muddy wasteland it's made out to be. More like a flooded forest where beautiful Bald Cypress and Tupelos rise out of water as black as tea creating beautiful fluid reflections. Rich vivid colours, textures from velvet moss to rough withered bark, chirping insects, whispering winds and perhaps a sleepy gator slipping by.
