I lived on Cape Cod for nearly 20 years, and (having grown up in suburban Chicago) was fascinated by salt water mashes from the start. They change by the minute. The tides rise and fall, shadows come and go and the sky is in constant flux (on the Cape, anyway), sunny one minute, stormy the next. Trying to capture the light and feeling of place is a real challenge - but that's the fun of it!
