Picture of cottongrass (Eriophorum) growing on a marsh in northern Norway

Picture from a cottongrass (Eriophorum) marsh in northern Norway
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera July 4th 2007. Click image for larger view.

I liked the light on this marsh so had to photograph the cottongrass (Eriophorum). The sunlight came seeping trough a small forest that was growing at the outskirts of the marsh. I think cottongrass is a beautiful plant with its fluffy appearance.

This photo was taken at 9PM in the evening so the sun was pretty low. 2 hours later the sun had gone behind the mountains and mist started to appear on the marshes. Check out this photo of the mist. One of my personal favorites 🙂

  1. Hi Thomas,

    I love cotton grass, there is a large moss that i like to go to for the dragonflies, all the pools and surrounding area are full of it and when the light is right it looks lovely.

    Cheers Mark
