Rain stopped today. Got a day-off for some hiking and photography. The ferns were like wild fire growing everywhere. These were down a valley and the lighting was just right to show their texture and patterns.

Peter,

You sure know from where the light emanates and where it touches. Outstanding composition, cropping

Thanks for commenting, Torgny. The symmetry in ferns is interesting and it reallyoffers lots of photographic opportunities. From your photograph, it is obvious that the patterns are more of less the same as ours in Hong Kong.

Thanks for the threads. The first shot in http://forums.steves-digicams.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=591880&forum_id=8is terrific. The patch of fern is like a mirror. The fern field you have in your place is much larger than the one we have in Hong Kong. I remember travelling on a coach in Taiwan about a year ago, seeing huge ferns hanging out from the sides of the road. Those ferns I saw were very big and very much different in pattern from the one I see in your two links. The climate in Taiwan in humid and hot most of the time and probably, there are more types of fern viable there. Anyway, thanks again.

Peter
