Riding my bike through the Zeeland Wetlands is a favorite activity for me.   It was constructed with wonderful walking paths and many bridges enabling non motorized traffic the opportunity to observe nature quite easily.  The other night I was there quite late, around 9, but in West Michigan in the summer we have strong light until 10.  At this moment the sun was going down and backlighting a thick patch of tall grass next to the bridge I was crossing over.    It was so overwhelming that I tried to record the color to the best of my ability and focused on that in the painting.  As a result you are seeing brightly light greens buffered by a warm/cool shadowed areas.   Swans frequent this area but on this evening I did not see them.
