Marsh Cones

I have no idea what these are, but I'm calling the "marsh cones" for lack of proper identification, and because I found them rising from a "wear your boots” location not far from home on a morning drive with my husband. I love the way they reach and curl into the sky; small sculptures each unique and beautiful.

If you'd like to add a comment to my Thanksgiving post to expand this year's Gratitude can find that here.


  1. I wish I had your eye for finding the unusual. I bet tons of people just overlook these, but you notice and appreciate. Love that Laura.

  2. Very detailed pictures of beautiful shapes - lovely in B&W.

  3. The black and white really adds to the mystery. I still don't know how you manage to find beauty EVERYWHERE!

  4. They do look like mashed cones. Very nice shots.

  5. Your poem is a tribute to gratefulness.Thanks!
    My Australian daughter sent me a video about gratitude, which I'd like to send to you.
    I hope you'll enjoy it.

  6. Hi Laura, thank you for following my blog :) hope you have a great weekend! I really appreciate your comment, thank you :)

  7. Beautiful shapes! Interesting and good shots!

  8. Beautiful photos, B & W with exceptional quality of light and shades

  9. I've never seen anything like them either, they're quite unique!

  10. I like your marsh cones. They seem natures creatures, mummified, frozen in tame, story makers.

    God shows up everywhere.

    Thank you, for sharing.

    You remain in my thoughts, in my prayers.
