Wetlands 2017

In Deadman's Swamp by Eric Rennie

For more than 10 years I have been taking pictures in Dead Man’s Swamp, the largest forested flood plain along the Connecticut River, which runs more than 400 miles north and south from the Canadian border to Long Island Sound. Located about a mile from my home in southern Connecticut, the 500-acre wildlife preserve is an important stopover for migratory waterfowl and other birds. I am usually careful to steer clear during hunting season, since about half the acreage is owned by a fish and game club.

The photograph above is one of two of my images selected for a national juried competition called Wetlands 2017 at the Holt Russell Gallery at Baker University in Baldwin City, KS, near Kansas City. The exhibit runs from April 6, 2017 until April 28, 2017.  The juror is Michael Schonhoff, director of KCAI Crossroads Gallery: Center for Contemporary Practice.
