Altered Horizons 49

Altered Horizons 49 Robin Botie of Ithaca, New York, photoshops a fabricated landscape as part of her healing from loss and dealing with depression.

Even with the windows shut tight, the frog-song coming off the pond these spring nights is so loud it can keep you awake. The peeping, screaming, grunting or gulping sounds of each frog can reverberate all the distress already roiling around in your head. Or, if you settle your mind and limbs into the rhythm of it, it will lull you to sleep.

On the night of an almost-full moon I photographed clouds over the pond. Then I inverted the image in Photoshop, to depict the water below that teemed with new, noisy, messy and mysterious life.

    I have the frogs singing and mating all night too on my lake. They are so loud sometimes! Only last a few weeks.

      It’s truly amazing, all that frog noise. Some people hate it. But I love these this time of the year when there are so many different sounds outside at nighttime.
