Product Description

Location: Newburryport, Massachusetts Date: 4/23/09 Standard Print (w & h): Image: 72.0" x 24.0"

This image of salt marsh hay on Route 1 is composed of 14 individual shots taken at 135mm. I used to live in Topsfield, Massachusetts, so I have driven by these racks of salt marsh hay many times. Martin Johnson Heade, a 19th century landscape painter, focused on similar stacks. On this April day, they were a remembrance of past human gathering.
