NATURE'S PORTRAIT: On a recent cold, cold day, Stringer Louise Fennell spotted the glistening reflection of a large patch of ice-covered reeds, beside her route home from Cape Ann. Between cars whizzing by, she made a dozen photographs with her digital Nikon; her inspiration was from the book, "The Art of Seeing".
