Description:
A digital scan of a photograph depicting swamplands in South Carolina. In the middle of the photograph, the murky water reflects the trunks of the surrounding trees, while along the edges, algae blooms create a green film on the water’s surface. The air above the water appears white and foggy. Most of the tree branches are leafless, except for a few that bear small leaves. To the right, a cluster of trees bear grey lichens on their trunks.
