In the pastures and marshes near Old Town Hill in Newbury, Massachusetts, the low spots become shallow pools when flooded with heavy rains and melting snow. When the ground freezes in the dead of winter the pools solidify like large panes of glass cutting through a cross section of the salt hay, freezing it in time, and reflecting the sky like mirrors.
