France, Normandy, the Marais du Grand Haze.

On the outskirts of the sleepy town of Briouze, in Normandy’s Orne department is a special place.

Early April 2018.

200 hectares of protected Marais (marshland or swamp), the Marais du Grand Haze does not seem to be much visited, but walk around and perhaps you will see otters and herons and other fauna; on a windless day, sit quietly and watch the ever changing and complex reflections in the still water.
