My favorite time is when I am outdoors – either in some grand location or just the woods behind my house. I love the creativity of nature; the times when you see that nature really knows composition much better than I do. This cattail just had it all; I simply tried to recreate what I saw in an everyday, ordinary swamp in New Hampshire.
