Many of these reeds have been buried for months under the weight of a winter. It is a feat of pure strength and resilience that they bring themselves vertical to once again wave at the sun. Muddy Pond, once the source of Sterling Peat Moss, is now a wildlife refuge and protected wetland (which I discovered first hand sinking to my knee in some spots while shooting this picture).
